Scouts Help With Community Garden

R-T Photo/Ronda Lickteig Thursday was a perfect day to begin thinking about gardening and scouts with Pack 23 were out in force, helping prepare the community garden. Tiger Cubs, Bears and Webelos were at the garden, located at the north end of Harris Avenue, working with other volunteers to begin preparing the ground and planting. The scouts pictured above were preparing ground for a row of onions to be planted. First Christian Church is coordinating the garden this year, which will involve large plots that will be worked by all volunteers, who will then share the produce.  In the past, individual plots were alloted to those who wished to have a garden. Anyone who would like more information about the garden and how to participate may contact Ashlen Busick at 660-342-1655.
