Acton Garden Club

June, 2014

After every member of a first grade class at Merriam School helped dig holes, add compost and plant the flowers, Felix Koehler, Jane Lee and George Withington secured the fence surrounding the garden to protect it from recess balls and hungry rabbits.

This new pollinator and butterfly garden was a project teaming up Fran Strohm's class and some members of the Gardening with Young People committee of the Acton Garden Club. Jean Lane, Luz O'Connor, Ruth Schemel and Anne Sterling met with the students prior to planting and explained how butterflies choose their food and what plants need to grow. The plants were donated by the Acton Garden Club.
