What we are about


CT Gardens NFP is a corporation founded to turn an unused property into a Community, Butterfly Garden Parks. We are a Public Charity. The Gardens will be there to help educate the Community in the importance of creating and maintaining environmentally correct plants to aid in repopulating the Illinois Butterflies and to also help beautify the Community. It will also provide the Community a beautiful place to create a memorial for a loved one.

Our Objectives

1. To locate and convert unused land into a Community Butterfly Garden to help repopulate the almost extinct Monarch Butterflies in Illinois.


2. To provide a place where the Community can create a Memorial (not a cemetery) for loved ones..


3. A place where the Community can work together for the good of everyone to help beautify the Community and to provide a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.


4. To work with local schools, Scouts, 4H and Community to help educate them on the importance of Native plant life to Butterflies, Birds and Bees and how they are important to plant life. In furtherance of these objectives and in accordance with the powers conferred by the Certificate of Incorporation, CT Gardens NFP may collect gratuities, bequests, donations, and grants.
