About Us
The University of Michigan Campus Farm is a student-run farm established to build community, develop sustainable food citizens, and grow produce to be shared with the wider community.
We Participate Because
With the growing impacts of climate change and threats to a cheap and abundant supply of energy, the need to foster resiliency and adaptation at the local scale is increasingly pertinent. Colleges and universities provide a ready-made platform for students and communities to pre-familiarize themselves with future alternative scenarios and experiment with small-scale adaptations. The campus farm in particular is perfectly poised for this role, as it provides for firsthand exploration of community building and sustainable food systems.
