Shades of Moss Plant + Design, owned by Barry and Victoria Greene, is excited to announce the grand opening of their newest venture, Richmond’s neighborhood houseplant and indie record shop.  Shades of Moss is located in Carytown at 2128 W. Cary Street  in Richmond, Virginia.  In celebration of the grand opening, a black ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 30, 2023!

Customers can expect to find carefully curated houseplants, indie records and more in the shop. In addition to those offerings, the team offers everything you need to style, nurture and hang out with your plants. If you’re new to plants, they can help you find your way!

Shades of Moss Plant + Design owners Barry and Victoria Greene are members of The Jackson Ward Collective, the flagship program of The JWC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization in Richmond focused on current and aspiring Black business owners in the Richmond region. In addition, they are Spring 2023 graduates of JWC Foundation’s Community Business Academy, a 12 week training program designed to help business owners understand the nuances of operationalizing their business ideas.

“Shades of Moss Plant + Design is a joint effort with Not That Steep Tea Co. highlighting our love for plants, music, tea, and community. We’ve thought out every detail of what a cozy space looks like, smells like, and even tastes like. We hope the plants, premium loose-leaf tea, and record selection take you to a place that is warm, cozy, and safe. Remember to relax, it’s not that steep.” ~Barry & Victoria Greene, Shades of Moss Plant + Design owners
