In this program, Jaime and Maurice Ka (Collaborative Partner at Denver's Rosehouse Botanicals) explore relationships to the plants that share our domestic spaces and the symbolism embedded within them, beginning with a deep look at Jaime's exhibition and continuing with a conversation on self-care, houseplants, and the comforts of gardening.
