A student’s Eagle Scout project has been brought to life, thanks to help from local volunteers.
Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and their families came to Beebe Elementary School to donate their time and talents, and to support an eighth grade Life Scout, who is building the garden as a project, in hopes of becoming a full fledged Eagle Scout.
“The landscapers put together the beds, and the scouts and other people helped moved the beds into position, filled the beds with dirt and put down mulch around the garden,” said Jonathan Lowe, who is heading the garden as his Eagle Scout project.
Sebert Landscaping was also on hand to help. In addition to labor, they donated soil, mulch, and seeds by the truckload.
“They’ll use this the rest of their lives and hopefully they can grow some of their own food and share it with their own families,” said Sebert Landscaping’s Branch Manager, Kevin Moravick.
Most of the harvest will be donated to Loaves and Fishes Community Pantry.
