On June 27, 2012 our first session opened at the Bournelyf Special camp. Our first day teachers were Diane Roberts, Craig Rybinski, and Tom Bare. Assisting were Marian Post and Lynn Markealli.
Campers spent the morning adding amendments to the soil so that it would be just right for our butterfly plants. With some assistance when it came to steering, using the wheelbarrows to haul things to the garden was a favorite activity! There was some really good effort put into working the soil as well. Campers got to try out all kinds of garden tools and learn about them as part of our first session.
Another highlight was giving the campers the garden bags that Lynn made for them (great job Lynn!) with gardening items that we gathered for them. The garden kits will be theirs when their time at camp is over.
As the pictures taken by Tanya Hopkins will show, everyone really had a great time and our butterfly garden is off to a great start!
