Girl Scout Gold Award Project Free Seed and Compost Giveaway
May 5, 2022
In order to combat the issues of food waste, it is essential that people start connecting with their food. There will be free USDA Certiﬁed Organic compost and a selection of non-GMO seeds available for anyone who is interested in gardening to pick up. Another important aspect of this project is education, so Ava will be reaching out to her community to educate them on the importance of composting and shopping for food sustainably. With this small event, Ava hopes to encourage people to start connecting with their food through gardening and reform their food waste habits.
This project is run by Ava Frans, a Girl Scout in Culver City and a junior at Culver City High School. She has channeled her passion for environmental justice into her Girl Scout Gold Award project, the most prestigious award that scouts can earn, with the aim to make a lasting impact on her community for years to come.
The afternoon event is on Saturday, May 7th from 2-4 pm. To pick up compost only, it will be available from May 3rd through 8th.
This event is free and open to anyone who is interested in gardening. Please bring your own shovels and bags to take compost home.
