Roojerry Dangervil spent his Saturday plucking weeds from the ground in Homestead.
It’s now the way the 21-year-old typically spends his weekends, but he said the labor was worth it to help the farmers at the Fruit & Spice Park clear a section of bamboo to make room for more usable crops.
“It was a hot day and the sun was beaming down,” Dangervil said. “What made the work go by easier was looking at the beautiful views of the waterfalls and the exotic flowers.”
Dangervil was one of about two dozen Florida International University students who took place in Greek Day of Service over the weekend, which aims to help the park’s farmers.
Members of the National PanHellenic Council, Interfraternity Council and the Multicultural Greek Council participated in the event.
Organizers said that weeding the area will allow for fruit-bearing trees to grow on the property.
Dangervil was joined at the event by his Alpha Phi Alpha brother, Jamesly Laurent – who is also a member of the fraternity’s Tau Delta chapter.
“I’ve done plenty of community service but this one was quite different,” Jamesly Laurent, from the Alpha Phi Alpha, Tau Delta chapter, said. “Learning about the variety of fruits and spices was very interesting.”
Dangervil said he was happy to help the area’s farmers.
“It’s always a refreshing feeling to know that your effort and service made someone else’s job easier. That’s what it’s all about,” he said.
