Welcome to BlackGirlsGardening!

My name is Amber and I’m a gardener/plant lover in Wilmington, North Carolina. I started BGG on Instagram in 2019 as a way to highlight women like me and their passion for growing food and taking care of plants. Over the past year, BGG has really become a place for black women to feel connected to one another through the hobby of gardening and planting. 

When I got into gardening a few years back, I spent a lot of my time looking up tips, ideas and information about how to start a garden and I noticed that most of the people involved with this hobby never really looked like me (or I was just having a really hard time finding them!) Gardening has brought me such a deep sense of both happiness and peace over the last few years that I really wanted to create a space to share the joy of other black women doing what they love!

Gardening IS self care and a skill set that no one can ever take away from you. Tending to tiny green lives is the most important thing I do to maintain my own sanity. Black women deserve to have a community that supports and encourages them to step out of their comfort zone and to get a little dirty!

There is room for all of us to grow🌿
