Troop 610 contacted DLC earlier this spring with a generous offer. Could they use their cookie sale profits to help the Earth? Together, we decided to purchase pollinator-friendly perennials to plant behind DK8, next to the future outdoor classroom space. Thanks to Campbell Family Nursery in Harmony, NC, we had 5 species of milkweed, as well as Sedum, bee balm, and perennial sunflower. The girls worked hard in very dry soil to get the plants in the ground on Sunday, May 2. We then decorated flags to place on stakes so keep the plants from being mowed or trampled. We are certain to have happy pollinators later this summer!
