Burnham’s Field Gardeners – Girl Scout Troop 523 in Gloucester
Members of Girl Scout Troop 523 in Gloucester (left to right) Courtney Ashwell (16), Kelly Biondo (14), Emma Thomas (15) and Sage Frankenstein (15) show how to add personality to a garden plot. (Hint: it involves several cans of brightly colored paint.) The girls, along with Troop Leader Diane Wolff-Thomas and fellow Scouts Emily Moore and Jessi Silva, are learning about gardening firsthand with their own garden plot.
