Students from Boston University are spending their spring break sprucing up Reading.

Ten students are working with the Berks County Conservancy to maintain an urban garden on South 10th Street in Reading.

The students said it's not all hard work.

"It's a lot of physical labor, but it's a lot of fun. We make it fun, dancing, cheering, playing music, getting a little dirty. It's fun.

The trip is part of Boston University's alternative spring break program.
