Local Girl Scouts Plant Garden at Senior Home (Photos)

A local girl scout troop, which meets in Altadena, completed a service project in Rosemead over Memorial Day Weekend.

The photos above show a volunteer garden planting project of the Girl Scouts Troop 11711, which meets in Altadena.

Robyn Migel, the adult leader of the troop, sent us the following details of the project:

On May 26th, the Junior Scouts from Troop 11711 created a garden for the seniors at Mission Care Senior Rehabilitation Center. They used a 9ft x 2ft wooden box they built (with help from a few Dads) and filled it with soil donated by Garden View Nursery in Irwindale and plants donated by the Landscape Warehouse in Pasadena. They presented the garden to some of the resident seniors in a short ceremony followed by refreshments (including Girl Scout cookies).  These girls are 10 and 11 years old, and this was entirely their idea, as a service project to earn their "Bronze Award".  The seniors will be able to enjoy the garden for years to come.

Awww, God bless their little hearts. I know just their being there must have brought the seniors much happiness...
