The UF chapter of AZ was represented at this year's Alpha Zeta national conference by our student advisor, fundraising chair, national service project chair, scribe, chronicler, chancellor, social chair, and treasurer. Our chronicler, Claire Page, won the Centennial Scholarship and Chronicler of the Year. Charlie Doyle won Treasurer of the Year. Rikki Schwarz won Member of the Year. She was the lead director for the National Service Project hosted by the University of Florida that took place nearby in Orlando, FL. As a whole, the Florida Chapter won Service to Community and New Member Development! Even though a handful of the members could go to St. Louis, the Florida chapter is greatly supported by all our members, and we are proud of our accomplishments. The yearly national conference is a fantastic way to meet and make friendships with AZ chapters from around the country. Every year our chapter greatly looks forward to going to/hearing about the activities of the conference and meeting new and old friends.

On March 26th, Alpha Zeta with another organization known as AEHORT, Horticulture Student Association of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, and teachers participated in an activity which consisted of remodeling the interior garden of the library of the university. We did it with the purpose to carry the message to the community of the university on the importance of preserving green areas, because besides providing a beautiful landscape, it also provides good health for humans. Several species of plants were planted, among them were the orchids.

The Puerto Rico chapter decided to install a second hydroponic system in the Alzamora’s University Farm. The purpose of the project is to provide to the professors of the Crop and Agro-Enviromental Sciences a resource for the education. The Puerto Rico chapter also donates the coriander seedlings for the project. This system will be used in the plant nutrition, food production, and plant physiology courses Gustavo Rodriguez (Alpha Zeta member) with the help of other active members will be in charge of the management and care of the system.

Three alpha zeta members install a hydroponic system. The initiative started with Gustavo Rodriguez who realizes that the agricultural science department did not have any efficient hydroponic system. So he decided to increase the resources used for education. The crops will be sold to raise funds for the chapter.

Florida Fall '10 pledge A. Quinn Jones Food Drive Service 11-12 - 17-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This project was put on by other groups at the University of Florida who asked other clubs and fraternities to help contribute cans and nonperishable items for the underserved Gainesville population. Some members of the Fall 2010 pledge class contributed to this cause by donating at least 5 cans or other food items in order to receive a service point that would count as one of their two required service events for their pledging semester. This was a rewarding project to participate in for pledge class members got to interact with each other as well as other students and members of other organizations on campus, all the while helping our local community.
