Saturday May 5th our troop met with Franlin County Treasurer Ed Leonard and Grove ity Mayor Ike Stage to plant a Community Garden. We met early to divide up the seeds to plant. While we waited for all the girls the Mayor explained how to plant the seeds.
He dug up a toad!!! We all saw it as good luck for our garden (-:
The girls were watching to see if Mayor Stage could undig another toad!
Treasurer Leonard getting a chuckle out of Maria, he would point to where she should dig and instead she was dropping the seeds in the place he pushed in LOL !
A quick picture before we set them loose….
Look at me girls BE PROUD we are doing this for the Mid Ohio Food Bank!
Snack time I made sure we had apples and plenty of water. I handed out garden journals for the girls to keep track of the garden and to be handed in later. I gave plenty of info aboput the garden and food bank not to mention a schedule to follow for weeding and watering.
Abby told the girls all about the compost pile when they were looking foe a trash can. Nope she said throw them in the pile!
One last picture I wish all our girls could have been there! I hope tyhe girls learn a lot from our garden the food will help a lot of families from going hungry.
