Interviewee: LULU AYUBE (SHE/HER)
In your words… Tell us about your organization, business, initiative.
A service that offers educational classes, diagnostics for distressed house plants, and personal consultations to help you pick the perfect plant for your space and your schedule.
In addition, we offer a carefully selected collection of easy to care for plants to decorate your home or office.
Tell us a bit about you and why you do what you do? Share your passions for your business, initiative, organization.
I started keeping plants as a form of self care and would like to make the keeping of Green Space/plants accessible for all people. I believe that lack of confidence is the number one barrier people face when it comes to keeping plants.
By sharing information and easy to care for plant displays, I hope to assist others in building up the confidence and knowledge to keep their Green Spaces successfully.
What role do you think your business plays in supporting a more creative community? OR your community in general. (Bonus! Why do you think a more creative community is important?)
I believe that The Salem Plant Witch’s specialty plant (Marimo Moss) is both an easy to care for and adaptable plant to display.
I would like to use them to make customized moss bottles for different non-profits as a fundraising opportunity.
