    The entrance to the village of Rose has taken on a new look. Daisy Troop 40549, who are currently completing a gardening journey, decided that they would like to plant flowers around town to make it more beautiful to drive through. The troop planted flowers on the playground and in some local parks and at the towns welcome sign. Not only are they responsible for the flowers, they also took action to see that the unreadable sign be replaced.

    The sign is now refreshed, the flowers are planted, and Troop 40549 is to thank for all their hard work and dedication to their community.

    On this gardening journey, the daisies needed to 1)Discover (identify a problem), 2) connect (talk about how it affects us and come up with effective solutions) and 3) Take Action (solve the problem).

    Mission accomplished. They devised a plan, attended a town board meeting to present to the reasons for a new sign and asked for permission to gift it to the town (which had to be put to a vote). They contacted sign maker Wolcott resident Eddie Nowak and then prepared for the planting and unveiling.

    Cornell University Master Gardeners taught these Daisies dedicated to this beautifician project, the art of worm composting, and gave them the necessary worms to keep the soil in the new flower bed under the sign looking healthy.

    Daisy Girl Scouts Annabelle Arthur & Abigayle Bates painting landscaping timbers to create a new planting box for under the sign.

    Troop 40549 in the North Rose and Red Creek Service Unit 423, teaches girls in Kindergarten & 1st grade lessons about caring and sharing for their community. They have had a very successful year in working towards the introduction to Girl Scouting and have moved onto journeys.
