January 20th, 2020: Royann Petrell, ‘Gardens of China’

The ancient and modern gardens of China look nothing like Western gardens. Dr. Royann Petrell spent 6 months in China in 2007/2008 while on sabbatical from the University of British Columbia’s Chemical and Biological Engineering department. She has a long love of gardening, and was pleased when several of her Chinese graduate students and friends offered to help her locate and then visit some of the ancient gardens of China, as well as one very unusual modern one.
