For urban dwellers who don’t have much space or suburbanites who aren’t ready to rip out the front lawn and replace it with hills of potatoes, growing any significant amount of food can seem like an impossible endeavour. But it doesn’t have to be! Edible Landscaping demonstrates just how simple it can be to grow a stash of tasty vegetables, fruits and herbs while creating a beautiful green space. Whether one’s outdoor oasis is a boulevard, backyard or merely a balcony, everyone can get on the fast track to creating an edible and aesthetically pleasing garden with this practical guide.
Edible Landcaping includes advice on the most resilient and rewarding edible plants and detailed plans for fifteen types of urban gardens—from green roofs, community gardens and children’s gardens to hanging container gardens—enabling anyone with an interest in growing their own food to design a space to perfectly match their environment and needs.

Senga to Teach Course on Edible Landscape Design, March 1 and 2, 2014
In this weekend workshop, learn how to design a beautiful and practical edible garden. Whether your new project is a large development or a homeowner with a garden, balcony or patio, learn how to integrate edible gardens into your design. This course will outline basic construction details specific to the desired edible garden.
'Senga was an amazing teacher to learn from. She had a wealth of experience and practical applications to tell us about. Senga would make a great addition to the Certificate in Garden Design Program. She would be of huge value when learning about “client relations” and the “design module”. Her slides and powerpoints were also bang on. Can’t say enough good things… will take more classes by her.

Senga Landscape Architecture is a Vancouver BC Canada landscape architect company. SLA is built around a simple philosophy. The basic tenet of landscape design notes that a site dictates its intended experience. A site tells you what it wants to be - the art of developing truly outstanding work is in the listening.
We believe that landscape design should acknowledge and respect this philosophy. Successful landscape solutions depend on employing design that enhances both man-made and natural environments.
