Students serve by planting flowers

The BYU-Idaho grounds crew helps take care of the temple grounds. They make sure the trees, lawn and flowerbeds are in good condition year-round.

The school-organized service project was organized to plant flowers on the temple grounds. This is the fourth year the temple grounds crew has had volunteers plant flowers at the temple. This year saw the largest group of volunteers so far.

“It’s what we do every year,” said Matt Stuckie, a BYU-Idaho groundskeeper. “This is by far the most people I have ever seen come up to help.”

Stuckie works with Services Activities.

“I make one phone call in March and they turn it over to the student who’s in charge of the activities, and I … have everything ready,” he said. “That’s how it works. It’s that simple.”

Ayelen Cervantes, a sophomore studying psychology, is a coordinator for Service Activities. The grounds crew contacted the office, and Cervantes took on the task of gathering volunteers.

“We heard … that the temple needed service volunteers to plant flowers and we (tried) to spread the word,” Cervantes said. She also spread the word by handing out flowers and letting her friends know about the activity.
