Student Farm

The mission of the Albion College Student Farm is to cultivate a student-organized, all-natural, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing produce garden for the benefit of students, faculty, and members of the Albion community of all ages.

During the school year, students from the Center for Sustainability and the Environment, the Whitehouse Nature Center and other campus organizations can volunteer at the farm, growing sustainable produce for campus and wider Albion community.
