Eagle Candidate Gets Saginaw Growing

Neither rain nor pandemic deterred Troop 100 from fulfilling its commitment.

Just in time for the 2020 planting season, the folks at Saginaw Mobile Home Park received the components of an easy-access community garden. The mid-summer surprise was initiated by Eagle Scout candidate Braiden Miller who solicited donations and enlisted his fellow bemasked members of Boy Scout Troop 100 to complete the project.

Along with eight sturdy raised beds – four of them wheelchair accessible -- came tools, soil, plants and fertilizer. The gift prompted one observer to exclaim, “This kid knocked it out of the park!”

And a fruit tree, too! St. Basil wrote:

And a home run for Saginaw Mobile Home Park, too.

St. Vinnie’s extends its admiration and appreciation to Braiden and Troop 100, along with project donors Lowe’s, C & E Rentals, Rexius, and Skip Tracer & Lads. We dig you, too!

Drier weather and the sweet smell of success. Or is it basil?
