If your Daisy Girl Scouts are working on Between Earth and Sky, come to Natural Grocers for our Food Jungle course which focuses on food quality and how what we choose to eat can be environmentally friendly or not-so-friendly food.We will compare conventional to organic foods and try to match pictures of food with where it came from.

For Brownie Girl Scouts working on Wonders of Water, Girl Scouts will learn about the types of meat we eat and how those meats affect our water systems and how we can work together to protect our waters.We will create posters that can be displayed in Natural Grocers for our customers to learn more about how they can help too!

If you are a Senior Girl Scout Troop working on SowWhat?, come to Natural Grocers and learn about sustainable agriculture, how to choose food that is environmentally conscious and learn about how food is processed so you can make smart food choices.
