The Plant Intelligence Project: Advancing education

(courtesy UBCO)

The project is an exercise in sowing the seeds of creativity.

This week is research week at UBC Okanagan and all week on the show we'll be highlighting work that goes on at the university, as part of our series Advancing Education.

This link to a video about The Plant Intelligence Project describes how creative writing lecturer Sonnet L'Abbé and her students learn about and examine plant research, and then use that to create art.

Sonnet dropped by our studio with one of her students, Taylor Nesdoly.
