But then we discovered the Farmers Badge and found out that a good number of the leaders and a few Scouts are avid gardeners. A straw pole of the Scouts that had clung on to the bitter end of the Zoom meeting showed that they were either quietly supportive or silently indifferent to the idea which is a ringing endorsement as far as the 3GP Scouts are concerned.
A quick email to parents showed that twenty or so Scouts were up for a vegetable growing contest. While one leader set about making up 20 identical packs of assorted seeds, another separated out twenty seedlings in small pots. The scouts or their parents picked them up from outside the Scout Hall Thursday afternoon and we were set for our first green fingered zoom meeting.
