Our Backyard Biology

1. We are planting FL native plants for caterpillars and butterflies. 2. We have a bird-feeder, two live oak trees and have added beautyberry for the birds. 3. We have planted mulberry and raspberry trees and we have various vegetables that we are growing organically. The grandkids (ages 6 and 4) can ID the caterpillars, butterflies and birds. They know we have to water and weed and we have to make sure the plants are growing in the correct environment. They know they can each help and that we can all cooperative to make an environment for plants and animals in Our Backyard.

Arbor Day 2018

It went great! Lots of people came to help us plants including Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and the mayor himself. It went over the amount of time but everyone stayed to finish the planting job.
