Utilizing the popular sand-casting process, create a unique concrete butterfly feeding and watering station for your garden.   Learn from Knoxville Botanical Garden Grounds Manager, Mathew McMillan, about the nutritional requirements of butterflies and how best to attract them to your new dining station.   Most of the supplies to put out a complete dining station will be provided, requiring only a few easily found ingredients for a popular hangout to your garden’s butterflies.   The sand-cast process can be messy, so dress accordingly.  

Note: It is best to leave your work at the Garden to cure over the weekend.
