Many of the Garden to Table webpages were curated by a team of students from the Graham Scholars Program at the University of Michigan, which supports 50 undergraduate juniors and seniors at the Ann Arbor campus annually. The co-curricular program complements many academic programs. Scholars work with organizations through summer internships and sustainability projects that provide an opportunity to refine project management, collaboration, and other skills applicable to all career paths. The Scholars Program is open to all schools and colleges and is supported by the University of Michigan Graham Sustainability Institute.
YDL’s 2020-2021 intern and team leader was Isabel Brush-Mindell, a senior at the University of Michigan pursuing a dual degree in Cognitive Science and Economics. She writes, “I have enjoyed my time as a part of the Graham Sustainability Institute because I have been able to draw on my passion for learning and collaborating in order to assist people and organizations within the local community. In the future, I hope to continue to make meaningful change through these avenues and hone my interests which lie at the intersection of climate change and sustainability, science, and human rights. In my free time I enjoy hiking, playing soccer, reading, and playing board (and card) games.”
