Scouts' community service project - "Liberty School Book Nook Garden"

Liberty Book Nook Garden

During the summer of 2017, the Cub Scouts took on a community service project that started to grow roots at Liberty Elementary School when a teacher decided how neat it would be to show school pride.

The garden in front of the 2nd-3rd grade hall had been looking a little drab and students never could remember what was in the garden. Consequently, the Cub Scouts decided that for their service project as a pack they would recreate the garden to be more interactive and whimsical. The goal was for the students to talk about the garden, share in the garden, and add to the garden over time. Flowers bloom in the spring and summer, with the last bloom in the fall, but in the winter the garden doesn't do anything, go anywhere, or provide anything. 

After a few days of work and the Scouts' ability to work together as a team, the “Liberty School Book Nook Garden” was created! It is an area themed after children's story books, including Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, Frog and Toad, Treasure Island, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (well, sort of). The idea is for the kids to be able to guess which books are being represented and maybe they can even check out the books and read them, too. 

Liberty Cub Scout Pack 502 Scouts all had a part and ownership in the garden and they are very proud of what they have been able to accomplish. From soon-to-be-first-graders to last-year fifth graders, they've all placed a hand in this beautiful creation and are happy to be able to do this for their school.

This project would never have been completed without help from our community with donations to help supply the materials. Special thanks to Liberty Advisors and J.B. Griffith, III, as well as our very own teacher, Mrs. Isley, for their support of our Pack!
