Have you seen this great new badge for Cub Scouts. The Gardener Activity Badge looks the bees knees and will really help to bring out those green fingers in your Pack.

Gardener Activity Badge – Cubs will find out what seasons are best to grow a selection of six fruits and vegetables, learn what tools are needed to garden and show that they can use them safely. Then they’ll help to look after and grow at least one item in a garden or allotment for two months. Cubs will then find out what mini beasts are and why they are good for gardens and outdoor spaces. They’ll need to Visit a bug hotel and record what lives there. Cubs also then design plant labels for the plants that are growing.

There will be a prize for the first Pack to get the Badge, so don’t forget to share your pictures and stories!
