Seed2Shirt is rooting our work in our ancestors’ soil and land. Through community, we sprout our work throughout generations. It was beautiful to be a part of and sponsor this year’s Black Farm Tour by Triangle Bikeworks, a nonprofit invested in connecting youth to Black history through cycling. Our pilot farm, “The Peoples Freedom Farm,” was the first stop on the route, and we loved to see everyone. We showcased our work of rebuilding Afro-indigenous cotton-to-textile ecosystems from Seed2Shirt – how it will start and take root on our land. The tour retraces the steps of our ancestors on the Underground Railroad to Freedom.
