Inspired by her knowledge of the importance of pollinators to the environment, Olivia planted a pollinator garden in Davis Hayfield in Boxford. Olivia, a Girl Scout Ambassador from Topsfield, secured donations of 36 pollinator-friendly plants from her community of supporters.
The garden includes a sign with QR codes that lead to a plant guide for further education and an instructional pamphlet she created. The informational pamphlet describes the importance of pollinators, and provides instructions for creating a pollinator garden.
Olivia spread the word about pollinators and their significance in a presentation to the Steward Station after-school program at Topsfield Elementary School.
“My Girl Scout Gold Award project taught me how to be a better communicator and how to gather volunteers to aid in reaching a goal,” Olivia says.
We are so impressed with the new garden, and how Olivia is educating community members about this important part of the environment. Way to go, G.I.R.L.!
