Learn to love your Roots at Emerald City

Emerald City Plant Shop is New England's First Black Owned plant shop

​We are a local womxn-led plant shop and botanical event space based in Norwood. We believe your green thumb lies on the other side of learning how to care for your unique plants.  There are plants to fit every lifestyle and our goal is to help you find them.

While plant care is not linear, we help you find the right solutions to better care for your green babies, which in turn teaches us to better care for ourselves.
