Edible Landscapes

The Edible Landscapes began as a student initiated project that grew from an environmental philosophy class. The first proposal for a garden outside the Valders Hall of Science was wildly successful and not long after another proposal went in for a diversity garden, now located behind Ylvisaker Hall. The Pepperfield Project, a local non-profit working to help individuals develop and enhance their relationship with food, cooking and gardening, has been a key collaborator in helping to get Edible Landscape initiatives up and rolling at Luther. The goal of Luther’s edible landscapes is to demonstrate the beauty of diverse vegetables and edible flowers and to reconnect people with food plants.
