About Black Planters

The Black Planters Facebook group came about in 2020 during the height of much social/civil/racial unrest. Many black and POC planters felt excluded/disconnected from the plant community as many groups did not allow them to post anything related to being black, what was happening in the world, or BLM. 

We wanted to create a space where black people could come and share their love of plants without being censored or silenced and could feel safe. Plants and gardening have played a big part in many black families so it’s amazing to see people share their passion, give suggestions, get help and advice, etc. from others with similar backgrounds. 

We decided to create merchandise since many planters expressed interest in it.
