Belize Scout Foundation contributes $1,000 to scouts community garden

Posted: Wednesday, May 5, 2021. 9:02 am CST.

By Zoila Palma: On April 22, 2021, the Belize Scout Foundation handed over a grant of $1,000 to the 27th Cayo Santa Elena Jaguars Scouts. The grant was given to support their Community Garden project.

The grant was handed over by Chairman of the Belize Scout Foundation, Dr. Rene Villanueva.

The project was created as a ‘Messengers of Peace’ project that focusses on the issue of healthy and sustainable food options for community members that can be grown locally.

The Scout foundation says that the project aims to create a local garden that is cared for by the community, where they can learn the skills needed to create their own gardens.

The produce, once harvested, will be distributed to the neediest in the community to promote healthier eating practices.

The project is a joint effort of the Jaguar Scouts, the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Child’s Advisory Board and the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Board and is led by two Venture Scouts of the 27th Santa Elena Jaguar Scout Group, Ventures Suarlin Garcia and Marcelene Gentle.

“The Belize Scout Foundation wishes the Jaguar Scouts a most successful project and congratulates them for organizing this public-spirited project in their community,” a statement expressed.
