Butterfly Garden


Students are excited to build a butterfly garden that will attract and feed butterflies before they fly south for the winter. The students are hoping to build grow this garden more each year, introducing different species of native plants each year. They are also hoping that see our butterfly garden will encourage people in the community to plant their own gardens.


The students did a lot of research into what native plants would be the best to attract butterflies. We had to do some rearranging as some of the plants they selected were not yet ready/in season. Once the plants were picked up, the students worked hard to get all 150 plants, Joe Pye-weed, Heath Aster and New England Aster, into the ground. Students worked through breaks and stayed after school in order to get all the plants in the ground. Students also chose the area they wanted to plant based off of a few criteria: visible to the community, not a place were a lot of people walk through and close proximity to the Kindergarten pens.

Reflection & Celebration

Students were very excited and proud to have planted their garden. They have big plans for the future of the garden and hope to inspire more students to join the Eco Club and make a difference in our world.
