The members of the CSU Agronomy Club participate in many community service events throughout the year. The members see this as an important way to engage with their community members and help better the community all together.
The Agronomy Club took a couple of weekends to go to Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch to help with clean up after the Big Thompson Floods. The damage sustained from the flood waters was significant. Structures have been lost, bridges washed out, and the river has even cut a new path on the property. The Agronomy Club helped cleaned up debris from the floods around the ranch.
As part of the CSU community the Agronomy Club members participate annually in CSUnity. CSUnity is a community service project hosted by CSU. Each spring, over two thousand CSU students gather for a day-long service plunge in and around the Fort Collins community! Fellow students in plant trees, paint houses, visit with senior citizens, sort food, and much more. Services are provided to neighbors in the community, the City of Fort Collins, state, county and federal agencies; and local non-profits.
The CSU Agronomy Club adopts a family or two during the holiday season. The Agronomy Club members and the Department of Soil and Crop Sciences bought, collected and wrapped gifts and donated money and food cards for the local families in need.
