The Butterfly Garden at Greer Middle School
On Tuesday, April 15th, 6th grade student volunteers and Science teachers broke the ground for the butterfly garden. We would like to thank Mr. Smith’s dad for helping us to till the ground with his tractor. On the edge of the garden, we planted two fringe trees donated by TreesGreenville. Thank you Kylie Stackis from TreesGreenville for guiding and instructing us about the proper technique of planting and mulching our new trees. The big thank you goes to Mr. Padula from Padula’s Plants & Garden Design, who spent countless hours with our 6th grade students in the planning stage of the butterfly garden and also overseeing the project on Friday. We are all hoping that trees, bushes, and flowers will thrive and butterflies will find a new home in the garden at Greer Middle School. Please, check the progress in our garden at the back car pick up area close to the 6th grade wing.
