Dishaun Harris or Farmer D is an urban farmer in New Haven, CT with more than 13 years of experience growing food and educating community members on growing food for themselves. He was born and raised in New Haven, where his business, Root Life LLC, serves. He strongly believes that all people should have sovereignty over their food systems because that leads to greater sovereignty over their lives. In 2018, he decided to start his own culturally relevant agriculture business that specifically targeted Black and Brown communities in the city. He founded Root Life LLC which focuses on community upliftment and empowerment through urban farming, urban farm training, food justice education, agritourism, food aid efforts, and community-focused health events.
