Boyscout plants flower bed for handicapped

by webdev

A high school junior boyscout has come to the aid of the Helping Hands Community Garden to replace handicap-accessible flower beds in his community, reports Houston Community Newspapers' The Potpourri Magnolia.

Bryce Reynolds started a project to construct five low beds and two high beds accessible for handicapped gardeners which are above ground level. He said he decided on the garden for his Eagle Scout Project after he learned that the beds were falling apart.

The flower bed project will enable him to move from his current boyscout rank Life to rank Eagle. Several boy-scouts from his troop came to help him construct the flower beds.

Bryce received some of his funding from a grant given to him by Keep Montgomery County Beautiful, as well as his grandmother's trust fund and from Helping Hands Community Garden, an organization which educates people on organic gardening.

Blossoms that make wonderful additions to flower-beds include asters, chrysanthemums, day-lilies and irises, according to The types chosen should be long-lasting blooms which will last throughout all seasons or annual blooms such as impatiens and dianthus.
