Our Mission

 

Rootedinblk.co is a company that creates conversational plant pots and stationary centering African American history and culture.

Our mission is to inspire more representation and engagement of black people outside of typical spaces, specifically in gardening. We also seek to educate our community on both history and how plants tie into that history.

Furthermore, we seek to build a brand and community that is heavily involved in giving back and grassroot efforts. To get on track with this goal, we currently offer micro grants and plan to offer COVID-19 hardship relief grants in the near future.

We want all black folks with home gardens, amateur to intermediate to be able to decorate and enhance the aesthetic of their space with plant decor that speaks to our history, our hearts and our collective contributions to contemporary popular culture.
