Girl Scout Troop 8494-Danielle, Erin, Jordan, Nicole, Rachel, and Sonja

Thank you to the Girl Scouts that designed and organized these resource webpages for their “Sow What” Journey Project.  Every troop does a journey project before they do their Gold Award project.  This troop were community gardeners that saw a need for access to resources. They research, interviewed gardeners, and made how-to videos to help others be more sustainable gardeners.
