Girl Scout Troop 1882 based out of Barbourville, Kentucky, participated in the Grow Appalachia gardening program this growing season. On May 17th the troop participated in a planting workshop at the Barbourville Community Garden. The girls were able to get their hands dirty putting in tomato and pepper transplants as well as seeds which they watched grow all year.
They helped with the harvest of the beans in the large plot at the garden and regularly checked on their garden during their troop meetings.
The Girl Scouts also practiced their entrepreneurial skills by participating in the Knox County Farmers’ Market selling lemonade and cookies. The girls loved selling at their lemonade stand and participating in the raffle each week.
