These Black Gardeners On Instagram Are Sure To Inspire You

These black gardeners on Instagram will inspire you to get out, play in the dirt and grow good food.

It’s National Gardening Day which means it’s the perfect day to share some of my favorite black gardeners on Instagram. Why black gardeners? I follow gardeners of all backgrounds but one of my goals as a gardener is to establish a community garden right in our community. Our community is predominantly black. My children are black and if nothing else I want them to grow up with a love for mother nature, the Earth and yes growing their own food and flowers. I want them to know that yes black people grow food and flowers and run farms just like our ancestors did. I want them to know that growing food matters. And as descendants of both butchers and farmers in Jamaica, continuing this legacy is important to me. I want all children to see gardeners and farmers that look like them and that they are welcomed in this food space. And I hope to inspire other black moms to start gardens big or small and to carry on this legacy in their own families. So here are my favorite black gardeners on Instagram.
