Cultivating plants to attract butterflies
As part of the Homat al Hima international park that has been set up in the Hima of Khorbet Qanafar, SPNL has created the first botanical and butterfly garden of Lebanon. To attract local butterflies, we cultivate a diversity of flowers and grow plants thus, providing nectar to the fluttering insects. The garden is entirely organic, without the use of agrochemicals.
In addition, a summer wildflower nursery has been built where you can buy living plants, as well as organic products and garden decor. The idea is to promote and encourage positive environmental activities such as bird watching and butterfly watching. Filling a garden with fluttering insects makes flowerbeds beautiful and supports biodiversity at the same time.
