A Graham Sustainability Scholars team at the University of Michigan (U-M) worked with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on a project to support the Agriculture Preservation Fund. Scholars worked on improving the understanding of conservation easements and land value, evaluation of agricultural sales, soil quality, and the threats of development. The Scholars team recommendations outlined in the project report include an easement campaign, and methods for how the Agriculture Preservation program can expand.

Team: Braeden Fromwiller, Jessie Williams, Kelsie Imus, and Hershy Jalluri
