Eagle Project

Garrett’s Eagle Scout Community Service Project involved building 11 raised planter boxes, installing them, filling them with planting soil, laying down wood chips in the walkways between the planters, and installing a water system to establish the Yamazaki Memorial Community Garden at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, California. Over a 2 day period, 35 people put over 450 man hours of work to complete the project. The project was completed on May 28, 2006.

St. Mary’s Church applied for and received a City of Los Angeles Board of Public Works Beautification Grant in the amount of $10,000. One of the requirements for the grant was to have volunteers contribute their time toward the completion of a project that would enhance the community. The building of the planters and irrigation system and the volunteer hours by the members of Troop 693, Garrett’s family, friends, and church members were an integral part of the overall community garden project and the fulfillment of the requirements of the Grant.
