The Girls Scouts have been working in the gardens the last two seasons and we are delighted to have them!
They have grown food for the pantries, created a fairy garden, earned art and outdoor experience and so much more.
Now, the scouts will be able to earn a badge for their work in the community gardens.
This is the patch that troop leader Jess Clauser designed. Note the Pitney Farm barn and silo.
Green thumbs up to all the troops!
Mae Austin’s sunflower drawing took first place in the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens art show and one of her prizes was having her art work printed on a T-shirt.
Last night, at the Girl Scout leaders meeting, Mae, who is seven-years-old, received her T-shirt. She was very happy. It was her first art show, she said.
Her mother, Kim, said Mae was a very good artist. We can agree. Pictured above is Mae with her mother and the winning design.
