       Boulder, Colorado. We believe that caring for
       plants is therapeutic and connects us with the
       natural world, and what the world needs is more
       connected people. We are not just a full-service
       indoor plant boutique, but the sanctuary you need
       to connect to your greater health. At Terracotta,
       you can buy ready-to-nurture plants, organic plant
       food and soil, handmade pottery, crystals, and
       home accessories. We believe in incorporating
       earth's natural beauty into your daily life,
       effectively enhancing your well-being.

       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.

Our Commitment to
Provide you Quality Products

When you buy a houseplant from us, you are adopting something that has been
carefully nurtured by our team of Plant Experts. Our small team of buyers hand-
selects each specimen, looking for both beauty and health. Each plant then goes
through our integrated pest management protocol, ensuring it gets to you in the best
possible condition.

        Our Commitment
        to Provide You Support

                We are committed to providing you with everything you need
                to know to help your plants flourish. Connect with our online
                learning center, our educational events, or message us directly
                with your plant care questions.


        Our Commitment
        to Give Back

                 As 1% For The Planet members, we pledge to donate 1% of our
                sales to Cool Earth, a non-profit working alongside rainforest
                communities to halt deforestation practices that accelerate climate change.
