Girl Scout Juniors Alice, Ava, Alexis, Brooke and McKenna of Troop 1041 earned their Bronze Award by completing a project they titled, “Recycle Garden.” Using recycled materials, like tires and old planters, the Girl Scouts created a garden bed and picnic area for guests to enjoy while visiting Bluebird Gap Farm in Hampton. To get started, the Girl Scouts consulted with Bluebird Gap Farm to determine their needs and were then provided a large ground area to execute their project. The girls coordinated a team of volunteers to help with the process and received donations from friends and family to support their project. Throughout the process of creating the garden, the girls did weeding, mulching and more to improve the landscape. The girls also took additional steps to redo flower beds and refurbish picnic tables at the site for guests to enjoy.
Troop leader Conny Osborne said, “The project was intended to bring fun and light to the community visiting Bluebird Gap Farm. The girls spent over 20 hours over a year long process, renovating, gardening, and adding color and fun for the community. The girls learned the importance of nature and how to see and appreciate nature through their nature journey. They also learned how much they can give back and appreciate the outdoors and how to show others to appreciate nature and what values from your surroundings one has.”
Congratulations, Troop 1041 of SU 120 and thanks for making your community a better place!
