In addition to supporting the farms, her shop funds projects in her local NH community that allow children access to butterflies, moths, and other insects. In 2012, Rebecca created and donated a 3' x 5' display of over 70 species to a children's museum. She also began a program of rearing and releasing local moths (4 species including cercopia and luna moths) and Monarch Butterflies. Children get to work with the lepidoptera from egg to adult, then release them. She established a Monarch Waystation for Monarch Watch and plans to fund two more Waystation gardens in 2013.
Rebecca's philosophy is simple, so I'll let her tell you directly. "Everyone should have access to inspiration. Butterflies are a source of inspiration, a symbol of hope, change, or a memory for so many people. Be it a simple single framed specimen to inspire you or comfort you (or a loved one) on a wall or a jewelry piece that allows the wearer to carry that inspiration or strength with them, everyone should have access to inspiration. Many times sales come with a personal message about the reason why the piece is being purchased, a memory, a remembrance, a moment … Those messages sent to me are motivation and inspiration to me and for that I have to thank YOU."
