An advanced master gardener through the Michigan State University Extension program, Baker said she put a lot of research into choosing the right plants. With most of the planting finished, she and others will put down mulch today, she said.

Plants in the garden include dogwood trees, which Baker said is appropriate since the school is on Dogwood Drive. There are also perennial flowers and herbs to attract swallowtail butterfly caterpillars.
