Alpha Zeta HS Student Investigation Community Service

A High School Student, Naomy Candelaria required subjects with experience in developing a garden and subjects without experience in developing a garden for her investigation of Puerto Rico Zero Waste Management. As agricultural students, Alpha Zeta members have experience in developing a  garden, and so some members volunteered to be such subjects. Naomy required us to give her our recycling material for a total of three weeks, once after a week of recycling and another time after two weeks of recycling. Afterwards, we were required to answer two different surveys via internet. On November 10th, we handed over our first bags of recycling and on November 25th we handed over our second bags of recycling. At about the same time, we answered the surveys that were sent through e-mail and finished our parts. Naomy’s investigation was completed successfully. She was even published in the newspaper El Nuevo Día.

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.

All the rambutans were donated by Dr. Custodio who is a retired animal science professor and always of great help to our Chapter. We had three pledges attend and we could see that they are hard workers dedicated to learning something new everyday.
