Becker College students lend a hand

Students involved with the First Year Experience program at Becker College lent their collective muscle and energy on Wednesday, April 24, to help APW staff and consumers clean the Green & Gold Community Garden.
"They worked so hard and weren't afraid of getting their hands dirty," said Tricia Price, who oversees the garden.
"The students felt good knowing that they contributed to the success of the nutrition program and the people who benefit from the services that AIDS Project Worcester offers their clients," said Sarah Mosier, director of First Year Experience.
The students' efforts will allow for next steps, which include buying plants from the Regional Environmental Council's annual plant sale on May 18 Last year, 300 pounds of fresh produce were harvested from the Green & Gold Garden to supplement APW's weekly food bank.
