Girl Scouts Talk “Bees” at Our Farm February 2, 2017

The Congregation’s Homecoming Farm ministry recently hosted a Bee Education fair in Mother Josepha Hall for 35 Girl Scouts from Nassau County. Executive Director Elizabeth Keihm welcomed the young guests to a presentation given by members of the Girl Scouts’ LEGO Team known as “The Smart Cookies.” They presented skits, taught craft projects, and had a honey tasting. In addition, the Girl Scouts held a fundraising raffle for the Homecoming Farm.

This event was part of a LEGO competition centered on discovering problems regarding our relationships with animals in nature and creating viable solutions. Their theme this year, called “Animal Allies,” focused on solving the crises facing bees. The girl scouts believe that with increased education and awareness about this issue, people will be more likely to help bring about change.

The day was a special one for the Sisters, the girls, their friends, parents, and siblings, who filled Mother Josepha Hall with joy, laughter, and learning. We wish the girls great success as they move forward in the LEGO competition.
