Marbury Jacobs, MS, MPH

Marbury Jacobs, MS, MPH, first learned the basics of farming as an apprentice on organic vegetable and flower farms in Massachusetts and New York. Through those apprenticeships, she became more and more interested in promoting food production in a manner that benefits both the agricultural system and the natural ecosystem of the landscape. That goal led her to dual Masters degrees in Public Health and Agriculture, Food & the Environment from Tufts University. Upon graduation, Marbury joined her partner, Taylor Yowell, to co-manage The Garden Farmacy, their six-acre chemical-free farm outside of Jackson, Mississippi. She loves the long growing season in Mississippi, which affords ample time for innovation and creativity around sustainability in the gardens!
