    Episode 1 0 of season 2 is Part 1 of conversation with Monai, known by many as the Plant Mom of Amsterdam. She talks us through her journey from a kid in Jamaica Queens raised by a mama who made her go outside and camp every summer to becoming an international plant revolutionary in Amsterdam. She dabbled in floristry and fashion merchandising but a lunch break plant habit activated the plant mom in her who has helped and inspired many green thumbs! Monai's story is proof that it pays to see the beauty in this unpredictable journey we're all on called life.
