This project was a butterfly garden and outdoor classroom for an elementary school serving grades 2-5 in the Anacostia neighborhood of Washington, DC. To protect the roots of surrounding white oak trees, above-ground, compost filled "socks" were used as planters forming a fifty foot butterfly shape on the ground. Native plants were planted in the compost, and an educational drawing and booklet about the butteflies and plants was provided to the school for use in its STEM program. The project was funded by the DC Department of the Environment.
