Wyevale Nurseries in Hereford?has donated plants, compost and pots to help a troop of local Beaver Scouts to achieve one of their main activity badges.
The 22nd Hereford Beavers used the items to make potted plants to give to their mums on Mother?s Day, thereby helping towards their global challenge badge.
Steve Faulds, leader of the 22nd Hereford Beavers, said: ?We would like to say a huge ?thank you? to Wyevale Nurseries for their donation.
?This activity was one of the criteria for the Beavers to gain their Global Challenge Badge. This is one step towards them gaining their Chief Scout Bronze Award, which is the highest award a Beaver can receive.?
He continued: ?It can only be awarded once all six challenge badges are achieved, as well as many other activity badges. The young Beavers all enjoyed the gardening activity and their mums were delighted with their gifts.?
Adam Dunnett, Sales and Marketing Director at Wyevale Nurseries, said: ?We were delighted we could help the Beavers. We think it is very important to help promote gardening to the young generation.
?We hope this experience has given a few of the children green fingers.?
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section of the Scouting family, with an age range of between five-and-three-quarters and eight.
Activities are based around: ?outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories and learning how to be safe?.
