Girl Scout Daisy Troop #10160, of Santa Rosa, CA, has proudly presented The Guide Dogs for the Blind's California campus in San Rafael with six lavender plants. The girls, all first-graders, planted, maintained, and transplanted the lavender from starters for a project known as “It’s Your World-Change It!” As a part of the Leadership Journey, the girls were given the opportunity to explore the world of gardening and nature, while practicing elements of the Girl Scout Law, including being responsible for what they say and do and taking action to better the world around them.
The troop decided that raising the beautiful and fragrant plants would be a great first step, but that donating them to an upstanding cause would be even better. One of the scouts made the decision of just who should receive the lavender an easy choice, as her grandmother has worked in the Guide Dogs breeding department for years.
All the girls put great time and commitment into their Journey and take great pride in contributing their hard work to help beautify GDB's campus. The girls planted the lavender for all to enjoy (human and canine alike!) just inside the back entrance to the kennels.
