Teri Speight is back on the podcast this week. She spoke with us a few months ago about her book, The Urban Garden, which she co-authored with Kathy Jentz. Today we’re chatting about her other book, Black Flora.
Teri runs her gardening business, Cottage in the Court, and is the founder and president of the Jabali Amani Garden Collective, a garden club for predominately African American women. She’s also the Urban Gardening Chair and liaison to the National Butterfly Garden at the US Botanic Garden for National Garden Clubs Inc.
