The Albion College women's lacrosse team traded its sticks for garden equipment Sept. 15 as team members collected community service hours at the college's student farm.
While none of the team members had ever volunteered at the farm, the Britons quickly got to work. They separated into two groups, half digging trenches and putting up fencing, and the other half weeding the vegetable garden.
Jessica Mooney, a senior from Bloomfield Hills, Mich., who plays in the midfield, said, "It was cool to get involved in a different aspect of Albion that we have never seen before."
Marah Ranger, a sophomore from Kalamazoo, Mich., who produced five goals on the attack in her first year at the collegiate level, noted she appreciates knowing where some of the fresh produce she consumes at Baldwin Hall comes from since some of harvest from the student farm is sold to Bon Appetit, the company that manages dining services at Albion.
