Eagle Scout Project benefited the King and Queen Farm in Queen Creek Arizona
Noah C. of Troop 325 in Queen Creek, Arizona benefited the King and Queen Farm – a 5- acre community farm in Queen Creek, Arizona completing his Eagle Scout Service Project with 239 total service hours.
“The project that I chose for my Eagle was benefited the King and Queen Farm in Queen Creek Arizona- a 5- acre community farm that grows food and gives it back to anyone in the community who may need it. The farm needed irrigation for the fruit trees, replacement of old trees and new trees in their place. The farm also needed a long fence to be added to the front of the property. For my project I raised funds and donations for all of the supplies, trenching and trees and had 29 volunteers who helped us with trenching, laying down the irrigation lines, filling the trench, removing dead trees, planting the new the trees, digging posts for the fence, painting and building the 50 foot fence. We worked over 2 different weekends and spent over 200 hours on the project.”
