VegMichigan’s focus is to promote the climate benefits of plant-based eating. Intensive livestock farming is a growing problem in Michigan. The goal is to advocate for a transition towards more sustainable farming methods such as regenerative agriculture.
Lynn Henning is the Field Operations Team Director for the Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. Lynn emerged as a leading voice calling on state and federal authorities to hold livestock factory farms accountable to water and air quality laws. With her husband, she farms 300 acres in Lenawee County, Michigan, within 10 miles of 12 CAFOs. As a result of her work to stop pollution from factory farms and to hold state and federal agencies accountable to enforcing laws, Lynn won the 2010 Goldman Environmental Prize—the environmental equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
