Not only do the girls benefit, but the Fall Product Sale also allows the council to provide First Aid/CPR training for one representative per registered troop, equipment for facilities, start-up funds for troops, and underwrite GSUSA sponsored destinations (up to $500 scholarship) per girl per year.

Ashdon Farms has created exciting activities to help girls learn about the importance of teamwork and the ways in which they can make a difference as individuals and as part of a team. Girls are engaging in the Girl Scout Leadership Processes of Girl Led, Learning by Doing, and Cooperative Learning by asking questions, encouraging girls to make choices and decisions, and challenging them to plan and solve problems together. Through Girl Scouting, girls become leaders in their daily life and prepare for their bright future! Product Sales provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills:
