Our lunchtime Green Club at Elizabeth Ballantyne School applied for and received ten free pollinator-friendly plant kits for signing-up to participate in the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s (CWF) “WILD Spaces for Schools” program.
We began planting the 40 pollinator-friendly perennial plants to attract monarchs, hummingbirds, bees, butterflies and songbirds in May. The honeybees in our Alveole rooftop beehive will be happy to have such delicious sources of nectar nearby!
Furthermore, we have initiated “Project Flower” in our school. The project is to get our entire school community involved in the garden by giving every student the chance to plant a flower this June and watch it grow. Another initiative our school’s bee colony will appreciate!
