Student Senate held a day of service in remembrance of 9/11. The service day meant to shine a light on “the great unnoticed tide of good” within communities, according to Benjamin Willets, vice president of student senate. The event took place in the Butterfly Garden, where attendees were able to help improve and expand the garden.

The student senate coordinated the event and Marco Wilkinson, professor of sustainable agriculture, oversaw the actual service work. “Global problems can seem insurmountable. Paying attention to what is right in front of you is how we can help the community,” said Wilkinson.

 

Lester White, financial secretary of the student senate, was helping at the garden. “I’m a firm believer that you can make a difference. It starts with you as an individual,” he said.

 

The Butterfly Garden is located between the Stocker Fine Arts Center and the Patsy Campana Building. As a community garden, students are more than welcome to visit and enjoy the scenery.
