Jan. 21, 2019 – “A garden is a delight to the eye and a solace
for the soul.” -Sadi Ranson.
Understanding the benefits of a beautiful garden, Krysta Merical of St.
Marys recently completed a garden project for her Girl Scout Silver Award
at the Southeast Georgia Health System’s Senior Care Center-St. Marys.
Krysta wrote letters to Ace Hardware and Lowes in Kingsland requesting
assistance with resources and, together, the stores donated two small
bird feeders, two birdhouses, bags of soil, and seasonal flowers and plants.
She also received a donation of flowers from Peters Landscaping &
Lawn Care in Kingsland and a plant from Donini’s Florist & Nursery
in St. Marys.
Then, with the help of her grandmother, Carol Armstrong, Krysta used the
donated items to enhance the Senior Care Center-St. Marys garden area,
creating a beautiful space for the residents to enjoy.
