Region 8 girl scout troop helping local farm

BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) - Brookland Girl Scout Troop 3400 hosted Farm Recycle Day at the ASU Farmers Market on Saturday.

All donations from the event go directly to Fair Haven Farms, an animal rescue in Trumann.

The troops are collecting farmscapes like hay bells, pumpkins and corn stalks. They got the idea after they visited the farm this summer and asked if there was anything they needed.

Jennifer Stephens is the troop leader and said the girls learn many lessons from this project.

"Giving back to others is the main goal and the main idea that they learn," said Stephens.

The troop has already taken two trailer loads of pumpkins.
