Last weekend, the Florida Chapter took part in the Edible Plant Project at Siembra Farms. The Edible Plant Project is a nonprofit mission run by volunteers that strive to promote edible landscape and local food production. The Edible Plant Project’s goal is to create alternatives to the unsustainable food system in this country. When we arrived at the farm, we were separated into 2 different groups. One group picked sweet potatoes, while the other group tended to the green house. In the green house, we picked out the weeds, cleaned seeds, and planted sugarcane. All in all, the Florida Chapter was able to devote our time in a fun and farm friendly way!

This year the Florida Chapter has asked the position of Publicity Coordinator to be as active as possible. As a response we have had many shirts created for events, such as the ones our members wore to Sea World just over a week ago (which you can see our members showing off at the penguin exhibit). The shirts pictured from this semester include our "semester" shirt (which is a shirt not for a specific event), the Sea World shirt and a shirt for our upcoming "Woodser" bonfire....

Road Clean Up

Road Clean Up

On Saturday, we performed our first road clean up on our Alpha Zeta Road! We all had a lot of fun seeing who all could find the most unique piece of trash. It was an absolutely beautiful day for a road clean up. Everyone went into pairs: one person picking up trash and one person holding the garbage bag. We ended up collecting 4 bags of trash. We have one road clean up down and two more to go! Can't wait!

Two Tails Ranch, Elephant Sanctuary

Originally posted by Thomas M. Travis

On March 24th, brothers from the Florida Chapter volunteered their time in lending a hand to the only privately run elephant sanctuary within the United States. Although the weather was menacing, we had a great time while working hard to help the Two Tails Ranch in its mission of caring for elephants and educating the public.
