Group Gardening

A little stone-edged enclosure, for instance, can be car­peted with moss, planted with tiny weed plants and evergreen tips, and made true to nature by interesting contouring, rocks and fences. Landscape scenes observed in the camp area, or a remembered picnic grove, could serve as models. Probably even more interesting would be a replica of the camp site itself, complete with miniature tents made of bark, tables and benches of twigs, and camp fireplaces constructed of small stones.

The finished product could be used in competitions, or done solely for fun. There would be nothing valuable to leave behind, and nothing to tote home-except, perhaps, ideas for carrying out certain related projects later on.
