On Friday ten brothers showed up at Weaver to receive the trees from a Christmas tree farmer that was kind enough to drive from Avery County, NC to deliver us the trees. We separated all of the trees, wreaths, garland and tips into respective sections around the shop so that it would be very organized for the next day...

Actives from the Cornell chapter spent last weekend at Chelsea VanAcker’s farm in Williamson, NY. They toured her family’s apple orchard, and had fun on a haunted hayride. Unfortunately, due to the lack of rain and late frosts last spring the damage to their trees was evident. However, the farm is beautiful and covers approximately 350 acres in upstate New York. The highlight of the weekend was the haunted hayride!...

UF Earth Day Service and Social 4/22/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter celebrated Earth Day by giving back to the community. Members cleaned up our adopted road with the help of some of our newest additions. The members that participated in the clean-up did not mind taking time out of their schedule, as the last 3 days of classes came closer and made graduation ever closer for some or the next year of school for others, to pick up the trash and get it off the street. The road clean-up was planned for the morning to avoid the heat of the day and to be completed when the Horticulture Departments Earth Day event started...

Corn Gleaning

Originally posted by Rebecca S. Terry

Three actives spent the afternoon of August 28th gleaning corn at a local farm. Early Bird Farm in Ithaca, NY was generous enough to allow their leftover corn to be harvested and donated to the Ithaca City School District. The corn will be served for lunch at Ithaca High school. The actives had a great time walking through the fields, and even turned it into a competition to see who could pick the most ears of corn!

The Florida Chapter was able to jetisend one member across the country as a representative for the annual NALC hosted by the Fresno State Chapter. Chapters from around the country were introduced to local agricultural ventures covering a variety of different fields. Members visited such places as almond processing plants, frozen food processors, and Sunmaid Raisins. The conference was a great way to meet people from other chapters and compare and contrast how each chapter operates. Members were able to meet with career representatives to make contacts leading potential careers. It was a great time and a great opportunity to connect with other members.

NC Campus tour

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On Saturday March 31st, 10 brothers met in the afternoon to give a group of 40 high school students a tour of NC States campus. We started off at one of the Dormitories to give them a sneak peak to what a typical room looks like. Then we headed to central campus to give them the low down of the buildings and what exists there. After that we went to the Court of the Carolinas where we witnessed a Quidditch tournament going on. From there we went to the Bell Tower and passed Holiday Hall to Reynolds Coliseum. We finally got ice cream at our creamery on campus and went to the bookstore for the kids to buy things if they wanted. The group had a great time and learned a lot. The point of the trip was to show them that it was possible to attend college and there are a lot of opportunities to get them to college also.
