Banyan Creek Elementary Science Garden Clean-up Project
There is an existing Science Garden at Banyan Creek Elementary that was in need of cleaning up, replanting of planter beds, painting of planter beds and benches, etc. School volunteers (students, staff and parents) along with members of the local business community (PGAL) gathered at the garden to clean up and to plant wonderful native species of plants in the planter beds. These plants will help to educate students about the importance of understaning the local ecosystem, the importance of using native plants to reduce water use and to promote and support local wildlife. The plants selected are butterfly and pollinator attractors as well. Class lessons will integrate and incorporate activities in the garden.
