Daisies, Year 2, Meeting 6

Community service is a term that is loosely used by people when they do good deeds.  For example, running a donation drive could be considered community service.  In Girl Scouting, a Take Action project is  like community service, but the difference is that it is a sustainable project that can benefit many people.

Today was the first day that we got out into the garden to really work on it.  We had our spot, but before we could do anything, we had to clear out the area.  So, we all put on our gloves and began working on that.  The spot choose was once an actual garden, but over time it was let go and became overgrown with weeds. We didn't quite finish today, but we did get a good amount done.

Over the past couple weeks, this project has been incorporated with our journey, Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden.  I just want to point out that it was the girls choice to do this garden (though the selfish side of me wants to do it too!), but their work each week has coincided with the story of the journey.  For those of you who are not familiar with this journey- four friends stumble upon this garden one day, and "unlock its secret."  As the garden begins to spruce itself up, so have my girls with their own garden.  I can't wait to see how this comes out!
