Heal The Planet’s Edible Landscape Garden
Upon entering Snyder Park, look to your right to see Heal The Planet’s satellite office and organic edible landscape garden. The garden is a demonstration site to tell a new story of how we design urban landscapes, from front yards to city parks. Stroll through the edible landscape garden and gain inspiration on how to transform your home environment into a beautiful, productive, and sustainable urban oasis. Be sure to take note of the abundant edible and medicinal perennial plants perfectly suited for our home in the tropics. Join us for one of our educational programs in the park to learn how to take cuttings from our garden to plant and grow in yours!
