Bigs and Littles came together on Saturday, October 13, 2012 to clean pumpkins in preparation for the Fall Festive, cleaned the trails in the Bamboo Forest at the Rutgers Gardens, and weeded the vegetable patch. It was a great bonding experience, and in this way brothers were able to give back to a very vital organization on in our campus community. It is tradition for our chapter to help out at the Rutgers Gardens every semester to introduce our new members to our ideal "Promotion of Agriculture.”

Brothers helped Farmers Against Hunger glean collard greens at Giamerese Farm. Gleaning is the harvesting of produce that would otherwise go to waste to be donated to a food bank. Cook chapter helps with gleaning every fall, to help promote agriculture and give some of our brothers experience in a farm setting, as some of them want to become farmers in the future.

On Sunday October 28th, members of the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta set aside some time to bond with each other by going to a Battleview Orchards for their annual apple and pumpkin picking. Our chapter supported this local, sustainable family owned farm by enjoying their organically grown produce. The brothers were also able to enjoy pie, apple cider, hot apple donuts, and many other baked goods, all of which are made with organic produce that can be found right on the farm. For the members of the Cook Chapter this was a great way to celebrate the changing of the seasons.
