Black Gardens, Black Gardeners: A Special Program to Honor Black History Month

2/25/2021 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET

Virtual Presentation
Thursday, February 25 from 7 P.M. to 8 P.M.
$10 General Admission | Students are Free!


Join us for a special virtual lecture by horticulturist Abra Lee! Whether as plant experts, academics, or in business, Black people in America have a rich horticultural legacy. In this conversation, we will discuss profiles of success, controversy, stereotypes, and nuance to gain a better understanding of their incredible contributions and complex history.

Abra Lee is a national speaker, writer, and owner of Conquer the Soil a platform that combines Black garden history and current events to raise awareness of horticulture. She has spent a whole lotta time in the dirt as a municipal arborist, extension agent, airport landscape manager, and more. Lee is a graduate of Auburn University and alumna of the Longwood Gardens Society of Fellows, a global network of public horticulture professionals.

Registration for this event is closed.
