The Gardener badge is part of the “It's Your Planet - Love It!” badge set introduced in 2011.
For the badges released in 2011, scouts must complete all of the activities listed to earn the badge.
This badge obviously works better if started in the early Spring, although some could be done in the Fall with planting bulbs (tulips, daffodils, crocuses, etc.).
Activity #1: Visit a gardenEdit
Activity #2: Explore garden designEdit
Activity #3: Learn how to choose garden plantsEdit
Activity #4: Experiment with seedsEdit
- Use toilet paper rolls to plant your seeds in. Once the seedlings are at the right height for planting, stick the whole roll in the ground - the roll will decompose.
- Make a mini recycled greenhouse. Could combine the toilet paper roll seedling idea with making a small greenhouse.
