Borrowed From Nature explores the rich and complex history of Japanese gardens in western Canada. Through the principles and design philosophy of famed Japanese Canadian designer Roy Tomomichi Sumi, we visit Japanese gardens in Lethbridge, AB, Vancouver, BC, and New Denver, BC, revealing hidden testaments to an enduring Japanese influence in our country.
Borrowed From Nature was produced in association with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with support from Rogers Documentary Fund, Canadian Media Fund and Alberta Media Fund.
