ABOUT

​ Hello. my name is Priyanka and I am a Chatham Girl Scout! I am in 8th grade and this website is a part of my Silver Award Project!


My mission is to inform the community about how nutrition and gardening can benefit health. I am striving to help the community eat healthier, learn more about how gardening works, and learn more about how they can incorporate freshly grown fruits and vegetables into their meals every day.
