Girl Scouts - Forever Green

The theme for the Girl Scouts this year is Forever Green. The Benicia Girl Scouts are living up to this theme in a big way.

The Scouts have already participated in 2 tree plantings and earned their tree badges.

The Benicia Tree Foundation truly appreciates this support.

The Partnership Way

It is essential for us to accomplish our goals through establishing organizational partnerships and collaborations across multiple sectors in the city of Benicia. Working with other groups, including the city, on activities consistent with our mission statement is a common thread that will touch everything we do. Some of our collaboration may involve filling gaps or complementing the work of other institutions in the city.

LEAF METAPHOR

 

As leaves on trees, we come and go,

our colors yellow, green or red,

our shapes and sizes

oval, pinnate, round.

We dance on the breeze,

we rustle in the wind,

we shade plants below.

 

As leaves we bud,

burst forth on limbs,

unruffle into space.

As leaves we hover

through hot summers

and together make a place

in which birds hide.

 

In autumn

all this service ends
