Our 'Cocoon Boxes'

Our 'Cocoon Boxes'

A small seasonal and inspirational gesture from our charity to help schools get ready the growing season and to encourage young people to 'give it a grow'!

Every year, before the growing season, The Papillon Project creates gift boxes (containing items such as seeds, plug plants, books and other resources) for schools who feel they could do with an inspirational boost to get the annual growing season underway. Like the transformation of a caterpillar into a butterfly, our 'Cocoon Boxes' are provided to help kick start the positive transformation of a school allotment/garden from winter to spring and to encourage young people to 'give it a grow'. Schools must apply for a free cocoon box each year and, pending funding and donations, we endeavour to make our 'Cocoon Boxes' bigger and better each year!
