Edible landscaping is the practical integration of food plants within an ornamental or decorative setting. Combining edible elements with ornamental specimens can be particularly eye-catching. The Rad Dish Edible Natives Garden located outside of Ritter Hall exemplifies the beauty of Pennsylvania's native flora. Full of lush vegetation, the garden offers a green oasis right on main campus! This demonstration garden, managed by Temple Community Gardens, is a living classroom for community groups and visitors in the practices of sustainable urban agriculture. The Edible Natives Garden was designed with brick lined borders, mulch pathways, and seating areas that welcome you into the garden. Join Temple’s environmentally focused clubs and organizations for an afternoon in the garden!
