Trending on Remodelista: We Need to Do Better

June 12, 2020

This week, on Remodelista, Julie wrote that we are committed to learning more, listening deeper, and doing better when it comes to inclusivity and representation of the Black design community on Remodelista. (You can read her post here.) We, too, at Gardenista have been doing a lot of listening and learning, and we pledge to consciously seek out and feature more garden and landscape projects led by Black designers.

Representation matters. The global movement underway has reminded us that our site is lacking in projects led, products made, and businesses owned by people of color. That is on us. We need to do better, and we are committed to championing a wider spectrum of people on our site.

Remodelista, our parent company, has already donated to organizations working for racial justice, including BIDN Donation FundNAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Innocence Project, and the ACLU. In addition, we will be donating 10 percent of our June advertising revenues to these groups. (We also found a good list on Eater of groups fighting for food justice and supporting Black growers if you’re interested in helping those causes.)

Thank you for your support as we work to do better.
