In honour of Black History Month, this week's episode of The Grow Guide is focused on black culture. We're honoured to have Colah B. Tawkin, host and founder of the podcast, Black in the Garden, join us to shed some light on why biodiversity in media is just as important as it is in nature (interview begins at 00:18:30). Colah challenges us to think outside of the white narrative gardening media often presents. We discuss her background as a gardener, the lack of representation and diversity in gardening, and some of the amazing guests she's had on her podcast. In a very fun round of Rapid Fire, Colah recommends her favourite black-owned gardening brands, influencers and podcasts. See all Colah's recommendations and resources mentioned throughout the show linked below.
