Caren Rosen, a freshman from Saugus High School, and Carissa Costanzo, a freshman from William S. Hart High School, recently achieved their goal of making the world a better place and creating smiles on the faces of Santa Clarita Valley seniors.

Rosen and Costanzo, from Girl Scout Troop #6142, earned the prestigious Girl Scout Silver Award by making the front of the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center, located in Newhall off of Market Street, more attractive. 

Together, Rosen and Costanzo planted beautiful flowers including alyssum, inpatients and begonias in large, blue ceramic pots along the front of the SCV Senior Center.

They also hung baskets of flowers, adding an elegant touch to attract the eye.

They also arranged flowers in terra cotta pots for the front porch tables, where they placed cosmos flowers.

Also, they installed drip irrigation for all the plants, so the plants will be watered daily.

Most of the materials, from flowers to potting soil, including the hanging plants and terra cotta pots, were donated by Green Landscape Nursery, located in Saugus off Bouquet Canyon Road.

The ceramic pots and irrigation plumbing were funded from the E-Waste Electronic Recycling event held at the Senior Center.

“I was excited to contribute to a good cause because the girls were energetic and aiming to please the seniors,” said Richard Green, owner of Green Landscape Nursery.

Rosen and Costanzo said they felt proud of what they accomplished and how they made a difference along the way.  After months of planning and 40 hours of work, Rosen and Costanzo earned the Silver Award, the second highest award for Girl Scouts.
