Edible Garden and Campus Landscape – At Carolina, natural beauty is as basic as the air we breathe. From McCorkle’s ancient trees to the flowers, vegetables, and herbs dotting the campus, our landscape is an integral part of the Carolina experience. Committed to preserving our ecological heritage, the UNC community is also creating new opportunities to connect with nature right here on campus, such as the Edicble Campus Initiative. A collaborative project between students, staff, and faculty, the ECI envisions creating a campus where students interact with their landscapes in a way that transforms how they think about their role in the food system. Join UNC arborist Tom Bythell and Laura Mindlin of the Edible Campus Initiative to explore the many ways in which Carolina’s environment nourishes both the body and the soul. To reserve your space, please email us at In case of inclement weather, or for any additional questions, please call UNC Visitors’ Center at (919) 962-1630.
