On April 6th, 2019 the Virginia Chapter of Alpha Zeta participated in The Big Event at Virginia Tech. The Big Event is a student-run day of service that has grown into the second largest event of its kind in the nation. Every spring, thousands of students, faculty, and staff come together to complete nearly 1,200 community service projects in the area with the purpose of saying “Thank You.” Alpha Zeta attends the event each year. Coincidentally, this year we were paired with a local farm and got to do some very relevant agricultural work. We assisted in cleaning up, mulching, and spreading compost around the property and in the greenhouse fixtures they had for their herb production. We also got to learn the art of potatoes and garlic propagation! Our members had a great time!
