April 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A portrait of Colah B Tawkin. Colah is holding a coloring book named Black in the Garden. She is standing in front of a garden. The photo is placed over a colorful abstract image.


Join Colah B. Tawkin, creator of Black in the Garden podcast, in a discussion on Black brilliance in botanical history, planting seeds for the future and growing a legacy.

Podcaster, comedian, and lifelong nature-lover, Colah B Tawkin draws on the strength of her ancestors and her awe-inspiring range of life experiences as she becomes the ultimate “plantrepreneur.” Her aim is to grow and foster village-building, education, and healing through garden communication centering the Black experience. She’ll make you laugh while she does it, too.

Colah is the juggernaut creator, producer, and voice behind the renowned Black in the Garden podcast as well as founder and head planter of The UnderGround Arborist, nonprofit tree planting initiative of Black In The Garden LLC.

Auto-generated captioning will be available.

Registration closes at 6:00pm Central Time when the session begins.
