Nathan created an amazing picnic area, gravel pads and custom picnic tables, for the Soos Creek Botanical Garden in Auburn. It took over four different stages to complete and many people lent a hand. Thank you to all that did! Also thanks to Home Depot in Covington for donating lumber and bolts and Palmer Coking Company for donating all the gravel.
At the Soos Creek Botanical Garden in Auburn, my scouting friends and I built four raised garden beds to protect their prized Dahlias. A gardening expert once said of Dahlias, “Never have so many enjoyed so much with so little time and work.” And he was right. There’s probably no plant in the flower kingdom that gives the gardener more spectacular reward than the dahlia. These dahlia beds will provide the community with contained beauty to admire.

It’s almost time for Eagle Project. The date I have chosen is the 12th and 13th of July which is creeping up very fast.

I’m looking forward to get the project finished so I can get my Eagle in the next month.
