    Today is the first day of #BlackBotanistsWeek and we're highlighting our #BlackRoots through our #BlackBotanicalLegacy. An unsung #Botany101 hero is Antione, a botanical genius who successfully produced a new variety of thin shelled pecan. 1/5

    It’s #BlackBotanistsWeek, organized to promote, encourage, create a safe space for, and find more Black people who love plants and celebrate all the ways they engage with and appreciate the global diversity of plant life. We’re excited to follow along and share!
