The Jr. Garden Club of Binks Forest Elem. School has a lot of "Green Thumbs in training" right now. Our Green Squad members have taken on a huge effort by trying to establish both butterfly and vegetable gardens, as well as, setting up and maintaining a composting program to help sustain our new gardens. Students have begun to set up garden beds, but have learned a tough lesson already" Dirt is not cheap." Our lack of funds are impeding our every effort. Please help us by supporting our efforts to add additional milkweed plants, fire plants, pentas, and salvias to our Butterfly Courtyard. We need cinder-blocks or large garden containers to expand our vegetable gardening efforts. Plans to donate seedlings to families through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity are in danger. Please help our students give back to the community and to the environment.
