Community Service events are unique in the fact that their mission is to not only connect the Rutgers community but also the New Brunswick and New Jersey ones as well. With World Planting Day, we partnered with Sandra from Rutgers Gardens to help educate students about the environment and plants around us. Activities included a plant display, DIY seed bombs, plant tasting, and more. My favorite part was seeing how excited everyone was to adopt-a-plant and be able to take it home with them. It made them happy, put a smile on their face, and that, in turn, made my day.
