The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show is right around the corner! The title for Temple’s 2020 exhibit is Course of Action: A Radical Tack for Suburban Tracts.”
Landscape Architecture and Horticulture students and faculty will portray an ungardened suburban landscape that attracts wildlife, embraces chance, cultivates resilience through diversity, and appreciates restraint and the viability of repurposed building materials. Reset your tack! Start the evolution at home!
Each year, Temple Landscape Architecture and Horticulture students seek to strike a perfect balance between the natural landscape, architecture, landscape design, horticulture, art and sustainability on one of the largest stages for their craft. Students and faculty spend months creating vivid displays that while dazzling to the eye also provide a practical level of application for sustainable concepts from green roofs, wetland gardens and land reclamation to porous paving, utilizing greywater and gardens as places of healing.
Their exhibits have taken visitors from the coasts of Ireland to the Big Easy in New Orleans, from the volcanic mountains of Hawaii to the Renaissance gardens of Italy.
