Since 1912 the Girl Scouts have been teaching young girls leadership, responsibility, courage and honesty through field trips, community service projects and earning badges. To add to their nearly 100 years of good work, the Girl Scouts just updated their badges to include a Locavore badge for the Seniors.

To earn a Locavore badge, the girl scout must accomplish quite a few tasks to become knowledgeable on everything from the business of food to what’s in season in their area.

Each step involves specific tasks like speaking to a local chef about how our food system works. And then of course, the scouts need to try their hand at cooking with local ingredients.

They have to go through the following list:

1. Explore the benefits and challenges of going local
2. Find your local food sources
3. Cook a simple dish showcasing local ingredients
4. Make a recipe with local ingredients
5. Try a local cooking challenge

If you look through the Girl Scout badges you’ll find that the organization is no stranger to promoting a healthy planet. They have badges that explore animal issues, becoming a naturalist and gardening for all ages.
