For the third consecutive year, we were honored to host the Temple Beth Am 4th Graders for a day of planting in the garden. We divided the children into
three small groups where they got hands-on experience planting seeds, learning
about South Florida’s unique weather from WSVN Chief Meteorologist Phil Ferro, learning
about butterfly gardening, and even started a plant propagation project to continue
at home.The students will also
experience the great taste of fresh food when they return during the harvest
season for a special meal featuring produce they have studied and helped grow. On the walk from the Clubhouse to the Garden, the students were fortunate enough to see a rare American Crocodile (from a far distance), a Wood Stork, an Anhinga, a bunch of Peacocks and quite a few Turkey Vultures. Phil did a wonderful job engaging the kids and assisting with the planting of the garden. Enjoy these photos from the event!
