Community Resilience Healing with Houseplants

Share this page:
Black people, especially in the United State and Caribbean, have been inextricably tied to the land, gardening, and growing plants. From being forced to grow cash crops through enslavement to growing plants both indoors and outdoors for sustenance, medicine, and spiritual healing, the connection of Black people to plants goes back before written time. However, the field of plant influencers and outdoor enthusiasts are overwhelmingly white. This fact, coupled with popular media’s insistence of tying Black bodies to urban environments would lead one to believe that Black people and plants are a contradiction. Join MoAD as we speak with three Black #Plantstagram influencers and discuss the power of houseplants to provide healing, especially during these anxious times.
