Our girls in Hawai`i are doing amazing things. They are transforming communities, building relationships and learning new skills every day to really make a difference. We know you’re proud of them–and we are too!
That’s why we want to know what Girl Scouts in Hawai`i are doing. As your council, we want to celebrate their accomplishments and share their success with everyone.
Take Troop 2096 in Hilo. Troop Leader Anne Anderson and her five Cadettes and six Seniors are working on a “Sow What?” journey. Since the beginning of the membership year, they have been partnering with Sam Robinson of Let’s Grow Hilo, who creates gardens full of taro, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, basil and lemon grass.
Sam, Anne and Troop 2096 have been hard at work creating a community garden behind Toy’s that Teach on Waianuenue Ave.–planting, harvesting and creating raised bed gardens and a beautiful bench. And they did it just in time for Make a Difference Day on October 27.
The garden box and bench were made out of all recycled materials and is the start of what will become a park along the river in Hilo. The girls have been so inspired that a few are basing their silver award projects on creating beautiful spaces for kids and reducing trash. Way to go, girls! Keep up the good work.
