Milford Daisies plant flowers downtown
MILFORD >> Daisy Girl Scout Troop 30347 has completed native wildflower perennial projects at the Parsons Government Center and City Hall gardens downtown.
The “Daisy Flower Gardens” are designed to add beauty to the public spaces and help to support pollinators.
They are the third Journey community service project the girls have completed in Milford.
Previous projects are “Three Cheers for Animals” at the Milford Animal Shelter, and “Waterfowl Education” helping to educate people why it is not healthful to feed the geese and ducks.
For a Journey Project, Girl Scouts team up with friends to identify a problem that they want to do something about and come up with a creative solution. Working with their troop leaders, they help to create a plan and put that plan into action.
The Journey awards are designed to show others how Girl Scouts make a sustainable and impressionable impact on the world around them.
The troop also made a $500 donation.
Additional support was provided by Cheryl Cappiali of Milford, while Milford Earth Day provided matching funding.
