Chemistry grad's spirit carries her far

Students bring local foods from seed to market

When students learn, everyone benefits. And at Fort Lewis College, those benefits can be found every Thursday from spring to fall under the Clocktower in the center of campus. That's when students who have been studying and practicing organic growing techniques bring the fruits -- and vegetables and meats -- of their labor to campus for sale at the open-air Old Fort Farm Stand.

The foods are grown and raised at the Old Fort, the site of Fort Lewis College before it moved to Durango in 1956. The property 15 miles west of Durango was home to the original military Fort Lewis and an Indian boarding school, before becoming state property and the home of the school that eventually grew into Fort Lewis College.
