Girl Scouts Gardening for Good in California

In California, Maggie Avants of the Murrieta Patch reports that Daisy Girl Scout Troop 1380 recently planted carrots in Produce for People, Murrieta's community garden. Food cultivated in the garden goes to area food pantries and to the Murrieta Senior Center.

The Girl Scout troop added their contribution to the garden this week when they planted carrots alongside Murrieta City Council member Kelly Bennett. For many of them, it was their first experience with planting as well as experiencing community involvement, said Monica Tentman, a troop mother. Tentman organized the effort, which fulfilled a merit badge for the girls.
