Plants Are the Seeds of Our Inspiration explores the ways we relate to plants: spiritual, economic, aesthetic, and practical. A Garden of Ideas expresses plants in interpretive sculptures inviting the visitor to interact with video, object groupings, and interpretive graphics exploring how world culture is rooted in plants. Activity exhibits look at how plants define our sense of place and time, and how we use them for spiritual and bodily nourishment.
