During the Philadelphia Flower Show, Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture students and faculty invite visitors to “get hip to living more responsibly.” Temple’s exhibit, Hip Haven: Hangin’ Loose at a Home Refuge, recognizes the stark contrast between the forces in the 1960s that were, and continue, to shape the nation. The exhibit has been recognized with a treasure trove of awards at the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show!
