Colah Tawkin

Colah is the juggernaut creator, producer, and voice behind the renowned Black in the Garden (LLC) podcast. Most recently she started a national tree planting tour to plant a legacy with her kids: Underground Arborist 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


Using her extensive horticultural knowledge, her endless love for Black people, and her keen ability to teach in a spirit of joy and kinship, she has built a village of ‘Soil Cousins’ that have come to not only love, but trust her voice. 


By amplifying Black voices and bringing the marginalized into the center, Colah is on a mission to explore the past, present and future of Black people with plants. Her aim is to inspire,  grow and foster village-building and education via plant media. And she’ll make you laugh while she does it, too!
