Fleet­wood Girl Scout Ju­nior Troop 1793 has been work­ing on earn­ing their Girl Scout Bronze Award. They chose their project to ben­e­fit Mary’s Shel­ter.

Th­ese Girl Scout Juniors have been work­ing very hard this sum­mer. They weeded, a lot! They planted a veg­etable gar­den full of toma­toes, green beans, broc­coli, pep­pers and herbs. Th­ese girls have been work­ing hard in groups to re­search a veg­etable they planted so they could present in­for­ma­tion to the moms at the shel­ter. The girls worked in groups of 2 or 3 and de­vel­oped a pre­sen­ta­tion on how to plant, care for, har­vest and pre­pare the veg­etable, in­clud­ing pro­vid­ing recipes. Re­cently, they gave their pre­sen­ta­tions at Mary’s Shel­ter. They also were able to give out the bath bombs they made, did some more weed­ing and picked some veg­gies. They also planted some flow­ers.

The girls con­tin­ued to help at the shel­ter and worked sort­ing do­na­tions that the agency takes in. With that, they found some bins of es­sen­tial oils. They de­cided to turn them into some fizzy bath bombs to be able to give to the moms and kids at Mary’s.
