Elijah Williams was born in Florida, and grew up in Jackson Mississippi. Like many youth he graduated from High School without a clue of what he wanted to do in life. After attending Hinds Community College for Graphic Design, he left school to join the workforce.
Elijah began volunteering on weekends with Cooperation Jackson at the suggestion of a close friend. Since then, he has become a member of Cooperation Jackson and works daily for the Fall planting season. Elijah is a member of the emerging Freedom Farms Urban Farming Cooperative, and a work-owner of the emerging Nubia’s Place Café and Catering Cooperative.
