Laker Bloomers FGCM members break ground for the upcoming Prairie/Butterfly/Rain garden project at Hurricane Deck Elementary School on Hwy 5 in Sunrise Beach. This is a three stage project with soil preparation and plant selected being the first phase. Grants from Plant America sponsored by Federated Garden Clubs of Missouri and Cspoma Fertilizers have been applied for to help with the cost of the project. Local businesses are working on a feasible boarder for the garden and club members with Master Gardeners backgrounds are looking for the natural approach to help with soil erosion. The Vocational Technical Department of Camdenton Schools is also involved in plant selections . The gardens will be used as an educational display for the Blooming Lakers Youth Garden Club and any student who enters the school library. Some teachers have shown interest incorporating the butterfly area in hands on-lessons with their class.
