Henry Bushell

Pronouns: he/him

Henry Bushell graduated from the University of Michigan in 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Art History. Working at the University of Michigan Campus Farm, Henry became fascinated with sustainable and regenerative farming practices. He used agroecological principles to grow fresh produce for dining halls and sequester carbon from the atmosphere into the soil. As the Vegetable and Potato Program Assistant at Cornell Cooperative Extension, Henry worked alongside conventional farmers on Long Island, New York, to reduce the environmental impact of pesticide usage. In this role, he processed locally grown kelp from the Peconic Estuary into plant fertilizer, sparking his interest in sustainable food and agriculture innovation. Knowledge and experience in the agricultural field prepared Henry to collaborate with the High Atlas Foundation, an NGO furthering sustainable development in Morocco. Through collaborative research, he helped develop an impact-driven business model to sell Moroccan pomegranate trees as carbon credits to American universities, financially and socially empowering Moroccan farmers. At the Bren School, Henry is specializing in Corporate Environmental Management and Environmental Innovation and aspires to use impact-driven business models to empower communities and reduce climate change.
