The Carolina Campus Community Garden recently hosted two UNC Greek organizations, Alpha Chi Omega Sorority and Kappa Sigma Fraternity for a “Greek Weed Dating” event in the garden.
Held Nov 13th, 1:00 – 2:15 (a perfect fall day, we might add) 16 students came out to the event. Participants spent about 15 minutes at stations before moving on to the next one and each time got the chance to meet and work with someone new. Throughout the event, participants got to do activities such as weeding (the namesake of the event), chopping and turning compost, digging a hole that will be a digging area in a new children’s garden, and spreading wood chips on our pathways. At the end of the event, everybody joined back together for more conversations and refreshments.
According to Alpha Chi member, Samantha Forlenza, “All of the Alpha Chi’s really enjoyed [the event].” Moreover, Kappa Sigma member Jonah Keyserling said, “Everyone there said that they had a great time” and that he would like for more people to come to the garden in the future.
We are thankful for everyone who came out and participated and appreciate all the help that it was for the garden. WIth help like this, the garden is able to provide fresh produce to University housekeepers who might not otherwise have easy access to fresh produce.
