A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Edible SDSU Map showcases a wide variety of edible plants found right here on campus. Launched in Spring 2019 thanks to Office of Sustainability student intern, Barbara Green.

Edible SDSU features the location of edible fruits, dates, berries, leaves, flowers, nuts, and seeds for you to explore! Including but not limited to many Date Palms, Strawberry Trees, and Edible Loquats. All in one user-friendly map!

Caution: Please use at your own risk. Make yourself aware of any hazards such as personal allergies.

The purpose of Edible SDSU is to provide campus community members with a tool to find a quick source of food. Also, some of the fruits that fall prove a challenge in keeping campus grounds clean. With more people harvesting these fresh fruits we hope to provide a food resource, a cleaner campus, and an understanding of the life around us.
