In the autumn of 2013, a butterfly idyll, or butterfly garden, was laid out on a vacated site. This allowed us to welcome the first butterflies to the Volksabdij in the spring and summer of 2014!
The construction was made in collaboration with the butterfly foundation. The butterfly population has been declining for some years. Research has shown that this is mainly due to a lack of flowers. The garden that was laid out at Volksabdij will contribute to the increase in new butterflies (and also insects such as bumble bees and bees). For you as a guest it is special to enjoy the scents and colors during a walk through the garden. In the spring the butterfly garden was supplemented with a B&B for butterflies and insects and paths were laid out. Come and take a look!
