Courtyard/butterfly garden gravel replacement.
The area between the classroom portables at TROY is a sort of courtyard, where students congregate at lunch time, or before and after school. The aim of the butterfly garden, aside from attracting bees and butterflies, is to beautify this meeting space, making it a comfortable place to enjoy some fresh air. Today we removed the gravel from one section of the courtyard, and replaced it with natural mulch, provided by the Miami-Dade County Parks Department. Mulch will enhance the aesthetic of the area while improving the soil quality and reducing the dustiness.
