Tyler Dee’s eagle project was to help the school garden for the Marylin Avenue Elementary School.
The garden is used by the special education class and needed some adjustments to better accommodate disabled kids, especially those in wheelchairs.
During the project, scouts built a new raised garden bed that would be easily accessible by wheelchair, removed 6 old garden beds, and laid/compacted over 20 tons of decomposed granite in order to pave a smoother trail for accessibility.
The workload was more difficult than anticipated for both workdays, but after a lunchtime pep talk, scouts were able to get the job done.
The final product looked great, and the school said the project also may serve as the foundation for future eagle projects.
