What plant would you thank for your next big idea?


Discover TEALEAVES x UBC Botanical Garden

GARDEN OF SECRETS

Your next big idea could be hiding in the bushes—literally.


Developer, designer, innovator, or just plain interested? Look to nature for your next solution. A garden isn’t just a garden of plants--it’s a garden of ideas.


By sharing the experience from experts from a variety of disciplines – from luxury tea blender

TEALEAVES, to UBC Botanical Garden, Christine Lintott Architects, and PFS Studio – this panel will explore how botanical gardens and the “secrets” they house can inspire different innovators from tea blenders, designers, academics and more to build lasting impact on people, society and the environment.


The first bud from the Garden of Secrets will bloom at Vancouver Design Week! A world of possibilities awaits.

All proceeds to the event will be donated to the UBC Botanical Garden.
