From the beginning of time, plants have been an essential part of celebrations and remembrance events around the world, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday is no exception. Plantz.com is proud to be a part of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebrations at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Not only was Dr. King a co-pastor at the church in the 1960s, but Ebenezer Baptist Church was also the location of Dr. King’s funeral in 1968. This year, President Joe Biden delivered the Sunday sermon to the congregants at the church, a first for a sitting President, paying tribute to Dr. King and celebrating his legacy.
Plantz.com was honored to help the church come alive by providing lush greenery for the occasion, including their charismatic Dracaena Janet Craigs with their wide and vibrant leaves as well as some luxuriant Aglaonema Mary Ann, or Chinese Evergreen plants. Both types of plants thrive indoors and require minimal upkeep, allowing the church leaders to enjoy the peace and serenity of the plants while focusing on staging their holiday events.
