Keiki Club is a plant clipping club started by Brooklyn based artist Aviva Rowley. The word keiki is Hawaiian for "baby" or "child", literally "the little one." Her vision in creating the club, was to build plant knowledge, collections and community through the exchange of clippings. Rowley said, “I’ve always loved the idea of trading clippings, growing a plant from another plant, extending a legacy.” In this spirit, we will be hosting Chicago’s first Keiki club at Mana Contemporary.

If you have plants, bring a clipping and story to share. If you don’t have clippings, that is ok! You can still join us, and receive clippings to start a new plant collection.

Plant enthusiasts, artist Linsey Rosen, and Amanda El-Khoury from Cornell Florist will join us to share their stories and plant inspiration. We will also have plant inspired food and drinks.
