Whitehouse Prep receives a grant from the National Resources Defense Council Green Gifts program.

Whitehouse Preparatory School is working to make their Community Monarch Butterfly Waystation  Garden a perfect environment for butterflies.  The children grew their own Butterfly Weed milkweed from seed and they got even more milkweed through a grant through Monarch Watch and the Natural Resources Defense Council Green Gifts Program. They got 32 milkweed plugs to plant in their garden along with the milkweed that they grew.  The alumni and current students also purchased native polinating plants that are deer resistant to be planted in the garden through Wild Ridge Plants.  All of these plants will be planted on our Planting Day on Sunday June 10th at Cornhusker’s Park in Readington Township.    The staff, children and families of Whitehouse Prep are very grateful to all of the parents who purchased flowers as well as the milkweed donated to our garden.
