Not only are you invited to create and connect with us, you’ll also be giving back to a worthy cause. We’re proud to share that for every one who joins a live session during the month of October, Skillshare will be donating $10 to No Kid Hungry, up to a max donation of $10,000. This organization is working to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food, and just $10 can help them connect a child in need with a whopping 100 meals, so make sure to join us live so you can make a serious difference in a kid’s life. 

Christopher Griffin is better known as @PlantKween, a Brooklyn-based Black queer femme plant enthusiast and community builder who brings education and joy to 240k+ followers (and 160+ plants). Christopher's mission is to build a diverse online community of plant kweens, daddies, mamas, and everyone in between, and share the joy, self-knowledge, and empowerment plants have brought into their life.

This live session will include:

  • Propagation 101, from identifying good candidates to celebrating new growth
  • A hands-on propagation demo with some of Christopher’s favorite “green gurls"
  • Tips to create a happy, healthy home for your plants and yourself

Whether you’re a plant parent on a budget, or searching for the perfect personal gift for a loved one, by the end of the session you’ll have everything you need to get started. Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Christopher and ask questions.
