Spring Planting Service PatchSuggestions for how girls can earn the Spring Planting Patch.

Great for multi-level troops. Older girls can lead the planning and organizing and younger girls can help complete the project.

Girls will enjoy getting outside and getting their hands dirty. And gardening is great way to get some exercise and Vitamin D.

  1. Choose your team. Will this be done with your troop? Your service unit? Family? Friends? What about the engaging the whole community?
  2. Choose a location. Walk, ride your bike or drive around your community to scout out some potential locations. Look for new locations that could use beautification or established locations that could use some improvement. Consider local regulations and obtaining any necessary permissions or permits.
  3. Choose a project. What would be the best type of planting for your chosen location? Think about maintenance. Most gardens will need maintenance. Who will be doing the maintenance? Generally, tree planting will not require as much follow up work.
    Here are 12 ideas:
    • Community Garden: Organize a community garden project where volunteers can come together to plant vegetables, flowers, and herbs. This not only beautifies the community but also provides fresh produce for local residents.
    • Tree Planting: Coordinate a tree planting initiative in collaboration with local authorities or environmental organizations. Planting trees helps to combat climate change, improve air quality, and enhance the overall aesthetics of the neighborhood.
    • School Beautification: Work with schools to enhance their outdoor spaces by planting flowers, shrubs, and small trees. This can create a more inviting and pleasant environment for students, staff, and visitors.
    • Park Restoration: Identify a local park in need of restoration and organize a community effort to plant native plants, repair pathways, and clean up the area. This can revitalize the park and make it more enjoyable for everyone.
    • Senior Center Landscaping: Partner with a local senior center to plant flowers, create raised garden beds, or establish a small herb garden. This not only adds beauty but also provides a therapeutic and engaging activity for the senior residents.
    • Urban Farming: Start an urban farming project in vacant lots or unused spaces within the community. Teach residents how to plant and maintain crops, promoting sustainable agriculture and providing fresh food options.
    • Community Orchard: Establish a community orchard by planting fruit trees in a designated area. This initiative can promote healthy eating habits, provide free fruits for the community, and create a sense of pride and ownership among residents.
    • Flower Bed Installation: Collaborate with local businesses or organizations to create and install flower beds in public areas such as sidewalks, parks, or plazas. Bright and colorful flower arrangements can uplift community spirits and attract visitors.
    • Native Plant Restoration: Identify areas where native plants have been displaced by invasive species and work with local conservation groups to restore these habitats. Planting native species helps maintain biodiversity and supports local ecosystems.
    • Rooftop Gardens: Encourage the establishment of rooftop gardens in residential or commercial buildings within the community. This innovative idea not only beautifies rooftops but also promotes urban greening, improves insulation, and reduces energy consumption.
    • Butterfly Garden: Research the best plants to attract pollinators. Find a local spot to plant the garden. Consider asking a beekeeper for help. Bees are an important part of our ecosystem.
    • Throw a Garden Party: Choose an area to plant a garden such as a local Assisted Living Center. Get the area ready to plant and invite the residents to help with the planting. Make it a planting party and provide refreshments and music.

4. Make a list of everything you will need including supplies and tools. What types of tools can be borrowed? Will you ask the community for use of their tools? What will you need for supplies? Where will the funds come from? Will you ask local businesses to donate some of the supplies? Will you need to do some money-earning activities?

5. Set a timeline.

6. Complete your project. Take photos or videos to submit to media and post on social media.

7. Reflect on your project with your team. Would you have done anything differently?
