My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is Dawn Conrad!

Dawn Conrad (DawnC, #7297) has received a certificate of achievement in Garden Gate for earning the Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert Levels Bee Good to Your Mother Earth Merit Badge!

“Identify five herbs and uses for them along with using them daily in cooking and/or crafts = accomplished Beginner Level.

Started an Herb Garden. Grew more than two herbs and used them in coking and some for medicinal use. Harvested and used the herbs. = accomplished Intermediate Level.

Identified issues re: location of the herb garden. Moved the herb garden to a new location. Planted additional three herbs, harvested and used them. Dried Basil, Thyme, Lavender and Stevia. Packaged in gift bags, used in cookie recipes, used fresh, and gifted to friends and family. I also Joined a local Herb Society, which has been very informative and helpful. Accomplishing Expert Level requirements.

Super FUN and satisfying to grow your own herbs! Herbs are such interesting plants and there is SO much you can do with them. Herbs offer a great learning experience, and I find it very relaxing to be in the herb garden.”

    Dawn, what neat ideas you had with doing this badge! I love how you also shared your successes with family and friends. No doubt they were thrilled to receive such a useful and unique gift too. It is not often that one can receive home grown herbs to stock their pantries with.

    Dawn–you go girl! The only herb I grow is dill because it comes up in my garden every year. Growing herbs must be a lot of fun. I may be inspired to try some myself this year.
