Cadette Girl Scout

Troop Project

Come join us to put together your own Front Porch Planter that you can take home and watch grow, brought to you by Cadette Girl Scout Troop 30699.

Front Porch Planters is a box gardening project developed by Youngsville Girl Scouts in the “Challenge & Change: Challenge Yourself, Change the World” program.

Girls identified a need in our community for healthy, home-grown foods. Our mission is to make a healthy community by giving planter boxes to the people in the Youngsville community so they can grow healthy foods.

Members of the Youngsville/Pittsfield communities will be able to plant their own vegetable garden and take it home.

These planter boxes are made out of cedar and are designed so you can grow a vegetable garden right on your front porch year after year!

Boxes, soil, plants and watering can will be provided. This is a free (but limited) offer that’s worth over $20. Limit one box per household. Participants will be asked to complete a pre- and post- survey. This program is funded by a USDA grant. Donations are accepted to continue to fund this project in the future, but are not necessary.

It will be held Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at Youngsville Agway.
