We are thrilled to announce the upcoming exhibit at Science World!
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.
With our Balcony Garden exhibit, learn how to create a bountiful garden in unconventional and small spaces, using the most water-efficient and time-saving methods.
