Charisse Johnson, owner and founder
Charisse is a health professional, community organizer, and master gardening apprentice. She is also a lifelong advocate of equitable outcomes and systems change. She is inspired by agrarians, gardeners, and creatives who share her passion.
In 2020 she founded Outside In to document her own family's journey into cultivation as well as to elevate diversity using her unique platform. In doing so, she hopes to inspire others to embrace their natural beauty and share in her love of nature. She also hopes to raise awareness of Black agriculturalists and address antiracist practices in environmentalism. Charisse along with her husband Brian and blended family live in rural Wisconsin.
