Tonda Elementary School
Posted By: Virginia Dean (June 13, 2019)
Tonda Elementary School Butterfly Garden rebuild is in progress. After establishing a strong garden, lesson plans, aligning garden activities with PCCS elementary curriculum, will be created. These lesson plans will be shared with Tonda's K-5 teacher. I will create and donate these plans, free of cost to the PCCS elementary schools (I am a retired PCCS teacher.) This garden will be maintained by the Master Gardeners of Western Wayne County.
Our Needs: Plants, Catapiller eggs, Incubation cages, fertilizer, wagons, a drip irrigation system and water hoses.
I will extend this drip system to the beautiful gardens the PTO planted this year. Currently, they must drag 400 ft. of hoses, or fill buckets and drive them out to the garden. A drip irrigation system will ensure success of both gardens.
