The University of Michigan Campus Farm at Matthaei Botanical Gardens is an authentic living-learning laboratory available to all students at the University of Michigan. The Campus Farm provides 21st-century leadership development, education, and research opportunities. The space offers invaluable lessons related to sustainable food production for students from a wide range of disciplines who—even if they don’t go on to be farmers—will play a role in the future in food system issues including public health, the environment, education, and the economy.
In collaboration with the Rackham Professional Development DEI Certificate, we are offering a community engagement experience that includes a brief overview of food security and food justice by the Campus Farm DEI Manager; a tour of the farm, including a tour of the student-built straw bale house; and a hands-on activity in farming production.
If you’re unable to make this session and would like to volunteer at one of our work days throughout the semester contact us at email@example.com.
Transportation will be provided to and from the Campus Farm.
