Our pack recently embarked on a local community service initiative with Community Harvest Project in Grafton, MA. After being introduced to the farm and what it does to help out the less fortunate in the surrounding towns, Scouts, parents and siblings helped plant two additional rows of eggplants. The day was a little dreary at first, but once the sun came up everyone had a smile on their face! Everyone worked well together and we all were an assembly line of farmers.
Pack 106 will return to help harvest the crop, which will be donated to the Worcester County food bank. In addition, we have also adopted a row of corn to help the CHP efforts to provide fresh vegetables to those in need. The scouts learned about their ability to positively impact their community while having a fun time in the field with friends and family.
It was a fun and dirty day and we thank all that participated!
