The Bedwell Butterfly Garden

Summer Vegetable Cart
The Green Team strives to help students learn more about their environment. Our various sub-committees concentrate on different environmental aspects: Recycling, Annual Tomato Plant Sale, Fall and Spring Bulb Sales and our Gardens (Outer Courtyard, Butterfly Garden, Native Species Area and the Vegetable Garden). Through these subcommittees we are able to give the students opportunities to practice good habits when it comes to recycling, understanding plant and insect life cycles and making environmentally conscious choices in all areas of daily life.

Most recently, the Green Team, in cooperation with the staff and administration, has focused its efforts on making the inner courtyard gardens a hands-on learning area for Bedwell students.  It is now an outdoor classroom, for all subjects from technology and math to science and art. One of our proud accomplishments this past year has been preparing and registering our inner courtyard as an official Monarch Waystation - the Bedwell Community is now officially contributing towards Monarch Butterfly Conservation!

The Green Team has many more wonderful ideas and programs ahead, all of which are possible with funds generated through the Fall  and Spring Bulb Sales, the Annual Tomato Sale and most importantly sub-committee volunteers like you!
