Boom for a Badge!

“Talk about a living lesson! These Girl Scouts planted their Boom about a month ago to earn a badge for food education. Through the “Grow Some Boom” process, the girls learn where their food comes from, how to care for it and watch it grow for harvest.

Just recently, the local TV station came out to check their progress. The popcorn is definitely knee-high, and the Girl Scouts spent the evening weeding and cleaning up their garden.

Way to go, girls! We’re so proud of you. Keep us posted on your harvested popcorn party!”
