1st Merrickville Cubs and Beavers
Dates: May 7
Location: Beside the Merrickville Public Library
The Merrickville Community Butterfly Garden
The 1st Merrickville Scout Troop will be continuing their Good Turn Week project from last year by updating and adding to the Community Butterfly Garden. On May 6th and 7th, they will be working with the Village Council of Merrickville-Wolford, the Merrickville Library, and the Rideau Woodland Ramble to improve their Butterfly Garden for this year’s Good Turn Week project. The Beavers and Cubs will be focusing on making and putting up a sign for the Butterfly Garden as well as installing a rain barrel.
The Butterfly Garden is going to be expanded and improved with help and support from the Rideau Woodland Ramble, a local gardening centre. While building a peaceful and relaxing butterfly garden, it will also educate the Beavers and Cubs on the planning and maintaining of a garden. The Beavers and Cubs of the 1st Merrickville Troop will plan the layout of the garden, choose the various flowers to plant in the garden and with the assistance of the Rideau Woodland Ramble, set up the garden.
This project gives the Beavers and Cubs an opportunity to give back to their community by providing them with a relaxing place for everyone to enjoy. This garden is located in the heart of the village, right beside the Merrickville Public Library. The Beavers and Cubs are very excited to continue their good turn from last year and make it even better. They hope that their good turn will inspire others to do their own good turn to make a lasting, positive impact on the whole community.
