Ocean View Butterfly Garden

Led by Rita Elegant, a teacher at Ocean View Elementary, students and parents planned and planted a butterfly garden. If you’ve never heard of a butterfly garden, it is a garden filled with plants that are known to attract those multi-colored and wistful insects.

The Ocean View garden was designed by Ann Amer and in the Fall and Spring of the school year children and their families gather for a Spring Garden Work Day. This was a great experience for both the students and parents alike. Many parents participated on the workdays and made the project possible. Orchard Supply helped by contributing free pavers as part of the garden landscape, but in large part, the project was made possible by an AEF Mini-Grant.
