PR Chapter Community Service

On Saturday, March 7th Alpha Zeta visited Finca La Perla in Mayaguez from 8:30 to 3:30.  Five members participated in the activity. First of all, we discussed with the owner, Luis Curvero, some of the present challenges the agriculture in Puerto Rico is facing and some basic information about the industry of the coffee in Puerto Rico. We shared a light breakfast for those who had not had any and proceeded to a tour of the property. Luis Curvero has many small crops in his property, including ginger, “pana” (Artocarpus altilis), “chironja” (orangelo) and cacao. The main crop of the farm is coffee, though there was not any to pick. After the tour, we helped pick cacao in many different spots. We were able to fill three sacks with cacao, and afterward opened them and put the seeds with the pulp in water. Afterward, we enjoyed a light lunch provided by the owner of the farm and then proceeded to participate in the process of grinding and packing coffee. Then, we were given a taste of the coffee produced at the farm and picked bananas, “chironjas”  and “panas” to take home with us.

Our Agricultural Sciences Department held a coffee fair, to promote everything about coffee. We had a small table where we sold muffins, cookies, danishes and oriented people about coffee. We had a lot of fun during the whole activity especially being so close to christmas where in Puerto Rico we basically start celebrating on November 1st and who doesn't love coffee. It was a great atmosphere there was music, dancing and great friends.

Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

Puerto Rico Chapter Pig Farm Visit

On November 8th we went to a pig farm in the town of Moca to work with pigs. We injected supplemental iron, tattooed their ears, castrated and weaned the pigs. It was a great learning experience for both the candidates and the old members because some of them had never worked with pigs. After a hard day of work working with almost 90 pigs we went to eat and shared some of our stories with this year’s candidates.
