Volunteers are the backbone of the UM Sustainable Food Program. The work goes beyond cultivating veggies at the Campus Farm. Working with member groups, volunteers have also hosted potlucks, discussions, festivals, symposia, fundraisers, and produce stands. They help maintain the Cultivating Community Garden and the garden at the School of Public Health. Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends and support sustainable food.
Internships are a great way to learn and gain experience. Through internships we hope to develop graduates who will carry leadership skills into their future professions while providing significant opportunities for volunteer support.
Classes and Independent Study
Creating a sustainable food system takes energy and creativity, and the first step is to think about the problems we face and our options in confronting them. In your classes you can square off with food system problems and begin coming up with solutions. Enroll in classes studying food and share what you learn.
