Tusculum College students shovel and spread soil to prepare a garden at Rural Resources for spring planting on Saturday. About 20 Tusculum College students spent the afternoon at Rural Resources helping prepare for planting and continuing clean-up from the fire that destroyed its office/outdoor classroom building.
The students helped prepare plants for planting and salvage items from the burned building, including pallets of bags of organic potting soil as well as cleaning some of the cookware that had been saved from the kitchen. The students volunteered at Rural Resources as part of the “Service on Saturday” Bonner Leader program. On a Saturday during each month of the academic year, students do a service project involving a community agency or organization. The program is coordinated by Boazin Katina, a participant in the Bonner Leader student service program. All Tusculum students, faculty, and staff are invited to take part in the service projects.
