Marshall Mitchell was born and raised in Chicago. He graduated in May 2019 from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. After graduation, Marshall began working as an urban farm assistant with Urban Growers Collective.
Marshall believes that “working with UGC has given me the opportunity to not only work in a field that promotes environmental stewardship, but also connects it strongly to food injustice and social change. Because of my employment at UGC, I am even more assured in continuing work in social justice and policy.”
In his free time, Marshall likes trying out different savory and baking recipes, and is currently trying to increase his fluency in Spanish.
