Episode #5: Arborglyphs and Human Connection All Things Green

    • Nature

When we lose touch, what do we lose? As a tribute to human connection during COVID-19, we at The Plant Society reflect on how arborglyphs have come to represent, celebrate, and play a role in love, loss and human spirit, as well as plants in general. From loved-up teenagers carving their initials in trees, to botanicals being splayed out at weddings—where brides throw bouquets enthusiastically behind them—as well as funerals, the birthdays, the graduations and anniversaries, and more. Over time, plants have long come to represent what makes us so inherently unique: the way we express our love for one another.
