Robeson Tomato

2023 Robeson Freedom Garden

Read about our Robeson Freedom Garden campaign in Town Topics.

A guiding principle of the Robeson Freedom Garden is honorable harvest. “Honorable harvest – to take only what is given, to use it well, to be grateful for the gift, and to reciprocate the gift.”

We will gather in September 2023 to celebrate Robeson tomato gardens planted in the 2023-24 growing season. We invite every citizen to join us in this campaign of dignity and freedom that celebrates community and collective action toward reaching the goal of making ROBESON a HOUSEhold name.

Please look for additional details regarding seed distribution and planting guidelines in late February to early March.
