Find the fun in gardening with Amazing Daisy and the flower friends in this 6-week Journey. You'll read an exciting story and learn all about making things grow while learning about the Girl Scout Law.

This is a 6-session Journey, but could be modified to fit your troop’s needs.

Resources

Programming Ideas for Troop Meetings

  • Plant mini-gardens to take care of at each meeting

Helpful Hints
  • If creating a group garden, pick flowers that can easily grow
  • If space is limited, have each girl only plant one plant
  • The timing of the Journey might need to be stretched out over the whole year so they plant their community garden at the proper time
  • Each girl should have a copy of the Journey book    
  • The green boxes throughout the Facilitator Guide have great additional programming options
