HUNDREDS of butterflies will fill the sky for the launch of Butterfly Plants for Poverty at Buaraba this Sunday.
Entry is free and several guest speakers will make presentations during the day.
Delphine Archer and her husband Ray started their little slice of heaven to help raise money for poverty-stricken people around the world.
They escaped the rat race by building a garden on acreage.
“There are more than 20,000 butterfly-attracting plants available for sale,” Mrs Archer said.
“It is a great family outing at this award-winning native garden with hundreds of little sweet-singing birds, an animal farm, face painting, crafts, food vans, a rooftop observation deck, butterfly house and 700m of walking paths.”
Mrs Archer said Butterfly Plants for Poverty was run by volunteers and all profits from plant and merchandise sales went to train poor people to start small businesses.
“These people in Africa, India and Asia struggle to earn only enough money to supply just one meal each day,” she said.
Mrs Archer said after training, the person got a small loan to start their business.
As they begin to put poverty behind them the money they repay then goes out to help the next family.
The interest charged is used to provide further business training and to support community projects.
The starting time on Sunday is 9am at 584 Bischoffs Road, Buaraba, which is off the Gatton-Esk Road.
To find out more about this great cause go to www.butterflyplantsforpoverty.org, or visit the Archers' farm this Sunday at the open day.
The Archers are encouraging the community to consider volunteering for the ongoing operation of the project.
“The pay is low, but the rewards to the environment and humanity are huge,” Mrs Archer said.
