The Morning Glory Garden Club of Hinesville has received a $1,000 grant from Plant America to complete a butterfly garden in Bryant Commons, a 160-acre park in Hinesville. The park has visitors from all over the country and Garden Club members want to make the Butterfly Garden both educational and enjoyable.

With the help of the other garden club members, Morning Glory club members began to plan for the Butterfly Garden, which they will be putting in alongside the newly-renovated greenhouse and a learning center with multiple possibilities for live demonstrations of various horticulture projects; flower arranging, organic gardening practices and much more.

The butterfly garden is now moving forward; the greenhouse and walkways will be in process and club members hope to plant this year. The grant money will be used for the plants that will attract beautiful butterflies and other pollinators, to complete this project, which club members believed will be a real addition to the community.
