Recent displays have included art work by Peter Holmes, Sharon Kallis, Michael Hall, Chris Waind and a group of art students from Emily Carr University.

Connecting with our food and engaging with nature is vital to human health and happiness. Presented by GardenWorks and located in the Ken Spencer Science Park, our Balcony Garden exhibit shows how a little bit of creativity and garden know-how grows a long way!
As the number of people living in apartments and condos continues to rise, it becomes increasingly important to spark conversations about re-connecting with nature through gardening in the urban setting.
Drs James Till and Ernest McCulloch were two Canadian scientists who pioneered the field of stem cell research with the discovery of a method to detect cells able to restore blood production in transplanted irradiated mice. This finding prompted the later identification of cells able to regenerate other tissues, including skin, muscle and brain. This has led to advances in research and treatment of cancer.
