The Old Fort Farm Stand

Thursday, September 03, 2015

The Old Fort in Hesperus, 20 miles west of Durango and the original site of Fort Lewis College, provides a place for students to get their hands dirty learning about sustainable food production. The Old Fort Farm Stand appears weekly on the FLC campus, giving the community the chance to reap the benefits of their labors, with a great selection of fresh organic produce and grass-fed meats.

A team from FLC and Durango spent more than two weeks in May constructing a water system and communal taps in Than Taung, Myanmar.

The Village Aid Project is an all-volunteer campus program, open to students in any major, that brings together students, faculty, and community professionals to improve the infrastructure in impoverished communities in Latin America and Asia. 

This spring's team included two faculty, three community partners, and eight FLC students, who travelled to the Shan State, in Myanmar. There they also conducted monitoring and evaluation in five communities where water systems were implemented in prior years, and assessed new communities for water implementation projects in the summer of 2019.
