In our last post on Butterfly Garden project we mentioned how students have started planning for their butterfly gardens. They made presentations in their respective schools and convinced their teachers and fellow students to help them make a butterfly garden in the school.
Since last few weeks our girls were invested in fund-raising for this project. They made designs of how their butterfly garden will look like and were very particular about which plants to be grown in which part of the garden. 🙂
We are often amazed at how much passion and enthusiasm there is among these adolescents for any projects they take up. It was challenging for our students to visit plant nurseries in the hot afternoons and hunt for the host plants after a tiring day at school. It was commendable how girls managed to do this task without missing a single day of school and ALF.
Students have started planting the saplings in their respective butterfly gardens last week. It will take a few more weeks for the garden to bloom and be receptive to butterflies.
Our students have realized that every organism plays an important role in environment and the Butterfly Garden project is an initiative taken by them to maintain the ecological balance.
