Innovative Partnership

Research on Chinese Market Gardens and Chinese Medicine Traditions

We have partnered with several departments at UBC to create a framework that allows students to travel to conduct research and then transfer this knowledge back into the regional community.

More information on this unique partnership, its opportunities and impact are available in the PSA [PDF - 241 KB].

Students on this project will be sharing their research with Museum visitors from July 6 - September 2, Tuesday-Sunday. They will be near our new demonstration Chinese Market Garden and in the Herbalist Shop (Way Sang Yuen Wat Kee medicine shop).
