Nature is a powerful and shareable experience you can find anywhere. City trees, parking lot shrubbery, and even the plants we eat are readily available for thoughtful interactions. My work uncovers stories of what is growing around us and why, and encourages us to consider how plants connect us to the places we live and to each other.
