Daisy Scouts plant wildflower gardens for city

Milford’s Daisy Girl Scout Troop 30347 recently completed two native wildflower perennial plant projects at the Parsons Government Center and City Hall gardens.

The girls set out to create gardens that would add beauty to Milford’s public spaces and help to support pollinators, their Troop leaders said.

The flower gardens are the third community service project that the troop has completed in Milford. The girls also completed “Three Cheers for Animals” at the Milford Animal Shelter, and “Waterfowl Education,” helping to educate people as to why it is not healthy to feed geese and ducks.

These three projects are called Journey Projects. 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.

Mayor Ben Blake said the city is grateful for their latest project, their hard work, and $500 donation to help Milford.

Additional support was provided by Milford’s Cheryl Cappiali, and Milford Earth Day provided matching funding.
