A Butterfly’s Life…Part III at TAS

We were lucky enough to wrap up our unit on the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly with the presence of some Monarchs!  We talked about why butterflies and pollinators in general are critical to the health and prosperity of gardens and the vitality of all plants.

We have also been enjoying the fruits of the citrus trees as sweet treats every week!

Originally from Arizona, I was brought out to beautiful Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California where I will be graduating come December with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.  I grew up with a love of gardening from spending summers on my papou’s farm in Greece to helping my parents tend to our personal garden in Arizona.  My passion for the environment and gardening go hand-in-hand and I can’t wait to incorporate lessons from my studies to the students I am teaching at Alta Loma!
