Girl Scouts Work Toward Earning Their Bronze!
On April 19th, the Franklin Road Academy 5th Grade Girl Scout Troop reported for duty. They offered to build a low level garden bed designed especially for our babies and young toddlers and boy, oh boy, did they deliver! Loaded with supplies — lumber, gravel, plastic, and dirt, they framed out and filled a spacious patch that will soon be filled with sod and surrounded by herbs.
The babies will have a grassy spot to explore while experiencing the smell, flavor and sight of fragrant and healthy herbs. On a fun note, Ava Jean Teague, one of the Scouts, was a McKendree kid! We were delighted that she returned to our program to give back!
