JENNIFER MARSHALL / BA, MA

COMMUNITY GARDEN ORGANIZER / email Jennifer

Jennifer was introduced to gardening at home as a child and those skills manifested themselves in the cultivation of her own home garden with her husband. Living in a food desert inspired collaborative work with her neighbors in Orange Mound to purchase and farm a vacant lot, which developed into a small-scale farm and farmer's market for the neighborhood. As the Community Garden Organizer with Memphis Tilth, Jennifer is a member of the garden team and assists with garden planning and management, teaches the garden Elective for Advance Memphis Students, assists with farmers market operations and coordination, and continues multi-site community garden maintenance.
