Tamisha Singletary (they/them)

Tamisha Singletary brings over 15 years of experience as a community farmer and organizer committed to equity in sustainable living to the Young Farmers’ policy team. A co-founder to a 4.75 acre non-profit land project with four other young farmers, Singletary has also worked with five other growers’ organizations in their hometown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Rooted in a common Black American familial story of southeastern agriculture, land loss, and northern migration, Tamisha is motivated to increase, maintain, and restore land security, food sovereignty, economic justice, and community health for all. This motivation has taken Singletary into land trust feasibility, community and city planning committees, garden and environmental education, international farmer solidarity work, and U.S. policy. This motivation even re-inspired their late great-grandmother to reconnect with her passion for growing food at home, a cherished memory of bonding with the last generation to touch their family’s farm.
