Terracotta is here to bring nature into your homes.
How We Started
Eben Forrest founded Terracotta in 2020. He grew up in
rural Maine where having his hands in the dirt was a way of
life. His mother shared her passion for gardening with Eben
and he could be found tagging along behind her as she worked
in her gardens. Eben had his hands in the dirt from the very
beginning and experienced the positive impacts and benefits
of connecting with plants on a personal level.
With a background as a wellness practitioner, he began selling
plants outside his home in the summer of 2020, with an idea
to bring a little bit of positivity and hope to the stressed-out
members of his community during the pandemic. This passion
project quickly grew into a business, leading him to open our
flagship store in Pearl St.
