Scout Troop Service Project at Monon Trail Elementary
The Boy Scouts of America Troops 1910 and 1920 in Westfield did a service project at Monon Trail Elementary School. Due to the pandemic, the school's garden club hasn't been meeting and the garden become overgrown and weeded. The scout troop replaced the boards, weeded it, and planted some flower seeds to start the process of bringing the garden back to life!
Check out pictures of their hard work as well as impressive before-and-after photos.
