Hoover Girl Scouts Plant Edible Garden, Donate Fruits of Their Labor to School

Haley, Celeste, Abigail, Anna, Blakely, Allison, Jaime, Allie, Juniper and Maya, students at Bluff Park Elementary and members of Junior Troop 206, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project "Edible
Garden". They created more green & efficient homes by planting vegetables and trees, and they helped their community by giving fresh vegetables to Bluff Park Elementary. The girls learned that they enjoyed planning out and planting the garden, and they even discovered that some flowers, like dandelions, are edible.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
