On November 4th, a group of six Alpha Zeta members, whose labor is to promote agriculture through education to the community, offered a conference at a middle school in Aguada, Puerto Rico. It was attended by thirty-three children of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grade. During the discussion we talked about what agriculture means to them, explained its importance to all of us, and its current situation. They also had the opportunity to learn about the different departments that the College of Agricultural Sciences at Mayaguez Campus has and to see and ask questions about different pictures taken in the laboratories, of the common practices carried out in each one. They also learned about several associations dedicated to agriculture and the work we do as members of Alpha Zeta.
