Dishaun is currently a farmer at Common Ground. He is a New Haven native who has been nurturing his interests for sustainable agriculture at Common Ground since 2013. In addition to farming, Dishaun has also served as an Environmental Educator for Common Ground’s community programs.
Dishaun has a passion for both working in nature & working with youth. He believes that there is a necessary intersection between the two as it relates to food justice & food security. The youth are the next generation of global decision makers; Dishaun feels that it is important they develop a comprehensive understanding of how our food system works, how that relates to environmental/ecological sustainability, and their place in our global food system.
