Normal Community junior, Ben Brown, recently completed his Eagle Scout Project at Oakdale Elementary School. This project, which requires a scout to find a need in the community, raise the funds, and manage the project, provided Oakdale with their very own garden, complete with benches and garden beds. Ben worked with various community groups to secure the items needed, which allowed for a complete transformation of the space at Oakdale. This garden will provide produce for Oakdale families, in addition to the Farmer's Market that Oakdale brings to various neighborhoods. This garden will likewise provide opportunity for students to participate in hands on learning activities, right in their own backyard!
