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.
Once it was time the girls started to dig, the Mayor walked them through each step…..then
He dug up a toad!!! We all saw it as good luck for our garden (-:
After all the belly laughs and screams about Mr. Toad the girls got back to work, Treasurer Leonard helped the girls plant green beans.
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 !
We stopped for a bit and let the girls recieve thier Community Service badges from our special guest. They were so excited (-:
A quick picture before we set them loose….
Once we let our guest go to thier other obligation for the day we let the girls finish they had a blast but nothing was in any order whatsoever we just made sure we had everything marked!
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.
Grandma Scout finally got out of the car! She was cold (-: She told the girls all about her Grandma Ellis’s farm in Georgia from when she was growing up.
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.
