The Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture at Temple University is committed to excellence in ecologically based education. Our goal is to train leaders in the art and science of horticulture and landscape architecture. Our programs (Landscape Architecture - BS and MLArch) and Horticulture (BS and AS) provide students with a knowledge and an understanding of the environment so that they can improve the quality of our urban, suburban and rural communities.
Months of hard work by Temple University Ambler students and faculty paid off with special honors for Temple’s 2013 Philadelphia Flower Show Exhibit, “WILDE! Cultivating wonder in everyday places.”
WILDE! was awarded The Alfred M. Campbell Memorial Trophy, given to the “Educational major exhibit that demonstrates the most successful use of a variety of plants in a unique fashion;” a PHS (Pennsylvania Horticultural Society) Special Achievement Award for the “best achievement in creating a wild, natural environment;” and a PHS Gold Medal Award, “for the best use of PHS Gold Medal plants in a major exhibit.”
