On Wednesday, Jan. 13, the Garden Club of Palm Beach made a presentation to the Rosarian Academy’s third grade classes on Arbor Day and its history. They discussed different types of trees, with focus spent on the silk floss tree, which the garden club planted Jan. 15 in Bradley Park.
The speakers also brought in a few types of seeds from various trees. Florida celebrates Arbor Day the third Friday in January.
Third graders Layna Steele, Lulu Lang, Nicholas Stewart and Brewer Rehm helped the club plant the silk floss tree.
The Garden Club of Palm Beach focuses its attention on conversation, civic improvement and horticulture. It plants a tree annually in conjunction with Arbor Day.
Founded in 1925, the Rosarian Academy educates students in early childhood through eighth grade. The private, coeducational Catholic school is located on Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach. For more info., visit www.rosarian.org.
