The garden currently consists of twelve gardens covering 15 acres on the University’s South Campus. The South Campus comprises the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), UD Athletics, the technology focused STAR Campus, and the 40 acre Ecological Woods. The Botanic Garden is adjacent to the University’s working farm offering a distinctive opportunity to integrate teaching and learning gardens, display and collection gardens, ecological and research gardens, and agricultural interpretation. The Master Plan creates a cohesive experience with an intuitive circulation pattern in which existing and future gardens can be seamlessly integrated. The initial phase of the Master Plan implementation will create a central core garden connecting CANR’s high use buildings that will immediately improve the experience and offer an abundance of educational opportunities for the site’s primary users that include students, faculty, and staff. The Garden’s future expansion will create experiential display gardens that will attract guests from the surrounding community and the greater Delaware Valley. Future stages of the project will integrate the existing ecological woods and agricultural fields offering opportunities of ecological and agricultural interpretation and experiences.
