Plumosa School of the Arts garden club students wanted to make their garden easier to take care of each new school year and make sure their garden is beneficial for pollinators. The group researched and found the native plants would be the best option for their gardening goals. They applied for and were awarded the first-ever Eco-Audit Grant award in the school district of Palm Beach County. They will transform 2,500 square feet of public space with their grant.
