Mrs. Crawford’s Class Passion Project
Reported by Megan B
This year Mrs. Crawford’s class decided to plant a pollinator garden as our fall passion project. Our goal was to improve the way our school looks and also attract birds, bees, and butterflies. We decided to plant the flower bed next to the fifth-grade door on the east end of the school building.
The first day we began to get the area ready to garden. We removed the bark chips and weed barrier. Then the next day we prepared the soil and added fertilizer. The third day was the best! On that day, we were finally able to plant flowers, but first we had to spread the manure that a student in our class donated. Then we planted he flowers that had been donated by Home Depot, D& B, Lake Ridge PTA, and parents, and students.
Now we water the plants twice a day, once in the morning once in the afternoon. The class is looking forward to seeing our pollinator garden grown and our school looking better than ever.
