Upon returning from seed collecting, the Scouts visited CFC's seed room where all the collected seeds are drying and awaiting cleaning before sowing. The Scouts observed how different each seed looked and were surprised at the amount of seed collected by CFC volunteers.

Each Scout and his caregiver then joined the other workday volunteers to enjoy CFC's volunteer appreciation cookout where burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers and many other delicious foods were served as a thank you.
