Planting Day Is A Success!

The families of Whitehouse Prep alumni and current students helped to plant polinting flowers in our Readington Township Community Butterfly Garden.  The children had fun rekindling old friendships and make new ones as well.  It was a rainy Sunday morning but that did not stop us from planting 150 milkweed and polinating flowers for butterflies.  The children planted plants they purchased from Wild Ridge Plants.  Wild Ridge Plants sold WPS families native and deer resistant perennial plants for the Community Garden.  The township of Readington preferred that we plant native species and that is what we planted.   The children each planted the flowers they ordered and put a name plate by each plant.  The gardens are now full of Blazing Stars, Rose Mallow, Wild Bergamot, Golden Ragwort and Broadleaf Mountain Mint plants.  The garden beds were all planted and arranged by the children and their families.
