The Camberville Plant Lovers Facebook group saved my life. I am not exaggerating. A new neighborhood transplant mid-pandemic, I mapped the streets picking up plant cuttings in 93-degree heat. This is the only way I know how to navigate: Davis Square is a straight snake plant cutting, Rindge is a wilting swiss cheese monstera, Danehy Park is a tumbling handful of curling tradescantia. Every root is a network stretching across streets and apartment buildings and powerlines, connecting me to you, to the earth.
