Whitaker Learning Garden

In May 2017, we received a grant from the Mt. Vernon Education foundation to create a learning garden for Mt. Comfort Elementary.  Our goal is to create a Monarch Butterfly Habitat.  This project is a collaboration between Mrs. McCleery's first grade class and Mrs. Grandstaff's second grade class.

Setting up the garden

May 2017 -- Nathan Grandstaff builds the garden for us!

Whitaker Planting

May 2017 -- Mrs. Whitaker helps us plant the seeds before she leaves Mt. Comfort Elementary to head for Washington, D.C.

First Growth

June 2017 -- The seeds are starting to poke up through the soil.  

Heavy rain

July 2017 -- Heavy rain and lots of sunshine means incredible growth of seeds AND weeds.
