About SEED Wayne


  • SEED Wayne is dedicated to collaboratively building sustainable food systems on Wayne State’s campus and in Detroit neighborhoods through activities in teaching, research, community engagement, and campus operations.
  • We work in partnership with community-based organizations to increase access to healthy food, enhance food security, more closely link growers and eaters, and support community goals in economic development, ecological regeneration, health and nutrition, and social equity.
  • Student leadership is central to SEED Wayne’s success.
  • Our projects include campus gardens, the 22-week WSU Farmers Market, Detroit FRESH: the Healthy Corner Stores Project, Healthy Eats community nutrition project, farm-to-cafeteria, and cafeteria composting.
  • SEED Wayne is housed in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning.
