Black People with Plants_Gypsi_Collection of Collections_New Orleans Gardens.jpg

Black People with Plants highlights all of the beautiful black plant lovers, gardeners, botanists, florists, horticulturalists, those who use plants for healing purposes and in their creative work. As bonafide plant lovers, we are always following, reading, and researching. With this work, we’ve noticed a lack of people of color in publications, blogs, social feeds, and overall gardening/nature conversations. A very well-known and unfortunate fact in many industries (including gardening) is proper representation and inclusivity...and we know damn well black people love plants - growing them, admiring, eating them. This is when the idea was born to create a platform showcasing black people with their plants.

Here, you’ll learn about plant/human connections, the history of black people with plants, along with plant tips, and tricks.

If you're on Instagram tag any of your plant pics with #blackpeoplewithplants.
