Print More
Girl Scout Troop 60289 of Granby has earned the Bronze Award, the highest award that Girl Scout Juniors (grades 4-5) can earn.
For its Bronze Award project, Troop 60289 planted a garden and donated the produce to people in need. The girls took multiple sessions to come up with a plan. They discussed their goals, what they wanted to learn, what supplies they would need, who they would ask for help, and what vegetables they wanted to grow. They consulted an expert at Meadow View Farm in Southwick, Mass. before making their final selections. The garden was planted at the Granby Community Gardens and a watering and weeding schedule was followed throughout the summer. The garden produced successful harvests of beans, tomatoes, basil, kale, radishes, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini and summer squash. The produce was donated to Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen in Granby.  
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is given to girls who complete a Take Action project. Girls identify a community issue and develop and implement a project that addresses the issue’s root cause. Girls may earn the Bronze Award as a group and their project may be inside or outside of the Girl Scout community.
