Roxanne Jones

Our community gained an ancestor in Roxanne Jones. On December 23rd she transitioned after an extensive and brave battle with Cancer. Roxanne was our sister, our Friend and the inspiration behind the Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund alongside her Husband Donnie.


Roxanne's spirit was of motion and solutions, her love and knowledge of growing food lead a lot of people to the soil. Her transplanting courses on herbs and advocacy for her people has touched, taught and frankly moved the entire agriculture community in Detroit forward.

This is a HOMEGOING Fundraiser to support and cover the Cost of funeral Services and a Family Care Fund for her Husband and three children as they grieve, survive and lay their Mother, Wife and friend to rest.


We ask the communities of Detroit Black Farmer Land Fund, Oakland Avenue Urban Farm, Keep Growing Detroit, DTown and DBCFSN, City Commons, Earthworks, Detroiters and Families across the city/state/country/world to show up for Roxanne and our family here in Detroit, to exercise what it means to be in community together as we Process this great Loss.
