Throughout the years Moringa has
sponsored garden tours and teas as well as other special events.
We invite you to join us at this years events.
want to say thanks, thanks, thanks! We had a very nice intimate gathering
of Happyland children and a few visiting grandchildren enjoy Earth -
Arbor Day today.
||M. E. DePalma
put the invitation on the Moringa website before she left town for
the Flower Show and Convention. M.E. made sure her husband Jerry
came and wore his caterpillar antenna he was a fat caterpillar and
was going to make a cocoon and turn into a butterfly. The kids thought
he was great.
||Happyland's Miss Ashley released butterflies and we watched them fly
away in our clean air. Mrs. Adam's Kindergarten sang "The Green
Grass Grew All Around". Miss Joyce did props to my favorite song
by Louis Armstrong, "Oh What A Wonderful World". Ms. Cole's class
(that's me) read and showed their books on creation and told everyone
that God made the earth and we must take care of it. There were
examples of things to recycle also. Darling Ann Berkowitz did her
baking and we had 100's of cookies for everyone.
The best part
was the lady bug release because every single child was able to
hold a few bugs before they flew away (for their lives).
I think one
or two bugs went home in pockets. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Moringa's Community Projects
|Moringa Garden Circle has worked
with Sally Cash, Activities Director for Independence Hall to establish
a garden club for the residents. M.E. DePalma, a member of Moringa
and the Wilton Manors NatureScape Board has given presentations
to the members on birds and butterflies simulating residents to
establish a garden in their courtyard
||Residents( L to R) Peggy Spiwak,
Lena Surprenant, along with activities director, Sally Cash planted
milkweed, pentas, firebush, porterweed, salvias and passionvine,
which are all bird and butterfly attractors. "As soon as we planted
the milkweed there was a monarch," said Peggy amazed at how fast
it found the plant. "Our residents love to sit in the gazebo and
watch the squirrels scamper around the oaks and the birds sing in
the trees, said Sally. Now, she continued, "they will have colored
butterflies to enjoy".
