Monarchs in the Marquez Garden
This summer several monarch butterflies visited the edible garden and laid eggs. During late June visit to the garden, Samantha, Sophia and Angie spotted two caterpillars and a chrysalis in the butterfly garden. On a visit in early July I saw a monarch butterfly in one of our raised beds and set it free with the help of Zander, a STAR teacher.
