Flowers, like all of our more than human kin, remind us that there are so many gorgeous ways to exist in nature." - Kait Murray

In this video documentary produced by Jael Mackendorf and the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, learn about the significance of a beautiful flower bed that students created at the UC Davis Ecological Garden. Flowers showcase the beauty of nature, the community’s vibrant diversity and is a testament to the power of unity, love and acceptance.

This flower bed is special to me because it makes me feel like who I am is valued and important, and it ensures that people from all identities feel like they have a place here, and like they have a place in agriculture." - Ally Rose
