FOR EAGLE SCOUT, IT’S ABOUT GIVING BACK
For his Eagle Scout project, RBR senior and Shrewsbury resident Matthew Kowalski designed and supervised the construction of this storage shed for the Shrewsbury Community Garden.
Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
The Shrewsbury Community Garden was established a year ago by dedicated volunteers to beautify their community. The gardeners would bring all their own equipment tools to work the gardens; some would get lost or rust outside. Now, thanks to a volunteer project coordinated and supervised by Red Bank Regional student Matthew Kowalski for his Eagle Scout Rank, the volunteers have a new shed to house their equipment.
Matt planned the project for nine months, meeting with the Garden Committee for their input on the design and materials. After school, Matt and his fellow Troop 50 volunteer scouts and adult leaders constructed the shed in one month’s time. He also relied on his scout advisor and an assistant scoutmaster with construction experience for guidance.
