Collaboration With Girl Scouts Blossoms

Sue Stewart, then CEO of the Girl Scout Council of Central New York, and Gage Foundation Executive Director Sally Roesch Wagner presented Katherine Millet and Elizabeth (Beth) Bannar with the Junior Girl Scout Bronze Award on May 20, 2008.

The two Troop #151 Junior Girl Scouts furthered the identification of the flowers in Gage’s garden from an 1887 photo and began finding where to purchase heirloom seeds .

As Gage’s collaboration with the Girl Scouts grows, we are applying for funding to hold a summit of girls and women from both our organizations to develop a strategic plan for our projects.
