ANGELA HARRIS CANNIZZO
Founder and Executive Director
Hi, I am Angela Harris Cannizzo.
I believe in the power of nature. Nature inside is healing, comforting, inspiring and so much more! As a child I was lucky enough to grow up surrounded by nature. Watching my mom find joy in seeing her houseplant bloom was a beauty to behold. The happiness it brought her touched me as well. Something so simple as a blooming houseplant was a source of joy that brought a sense of peace into our little Jim Walter home.
It is with this powerful truth that I have made it my mission to put a plant in every home and especially in homes of those who can least afford it.
Through A Plant In Every Home non-profit we will help create indoor gardens for those who need it the most. We understand that buying an indoor plant would not be the first or second choice for households living on a fixed income. This is where our non - profit comes in... to connect people with plants in underserved communities. We would greatly appreciate your support.
Be blessed and plantiful!
