LBGC visits EES to plant tree and educate kids

Recently, members of the Lemon Bay Garden Club joined with Mrs. Labadie’s second grade class at Englewood Elementary School to celebrate Florida Arbor Day by planting a  gumbo-limbo tree on the school grounds. The Garden Club has planted a tree each year for Arbor Day at various schools and locations throughout Englewood. Englewood Elementary School was chosen this year by Adopt-A-Class Chairmen Marca Markwitz, Barbara McPartland and Barbara Jacobson and was planted under their direction. This group and other Club members have been working with this class for the past two years.  They have studied butterflies” life cycle and planted a butterfly garden, which was quickly followed by a vegetable garden. This tree will provide needed shade to these young gardeners. The tree was chosen by Laurel Schiller, co-owner of Florida Native Plants Nursery.  It is a gumbo-limbo (Bursera simaruba), also called “Tourists Nose Tree” due to its red, peeling bark. It can grow to 60’ and is a strong, salt resistant Florida native. Pictured is Garden Club member Marca Markwitz reading a book on trees to Englewood Elementary second graders in preparation for the tree planted on Jan 18, Florida Arbor Day.
