Volunteers at the University of Michigan Campus Farm

We believe the following recommendations will enhance the campus farm by encouraging student engagement:

  • Boosting visibility of the campus farm and food sustainability through increased academic engagement
  • Incorporating animals into the farm environment to foster human empathy for the natural world
  • Increasing the farm's online presence through a centralized website and regularly maintained social media sites
  • Targeting established sustainability, community service, or civic engagement groups and students with interests in sustainable agriculture to volunteer at the farm

  • Incorporating social events after volunteer experiences
