Club of Philadelphia Flower Show Tour (Philadelphia, PA)
March 8, 2016 @ 3:00 pm
Experience spring early and join the Mount Holyoke Club of Philadelphia on Tuesday, March 8 for a tour and get together at the Philadelphia Flower Show hosted by two alums!
The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event, and features stunning displays by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers. Started in 1829 by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, the show introduces a great variety of house and garden plants, floral and landscape design concepts, and organic and sustainable practices.
This year, The Philadelphia Flower Show theme is “Explore America!” From Acadia to Yosemite, PHS and the Park Service are engaging those who know and love the parks, and inviting a new generation to discover the special places that belong to us all. Acres of floral designs, gardens, and heart pounding adventure await visitors. Proceeds from the Flower Show benefit the year-round programs of PHS that have become national models of urban greening, including City Harvest, which creates green jobs and supports a network of community gardens that raise fresh produce for families in need; Philadelphia LandCare, which has transformed and maintains more than 10 million square feet of vacant land in the city; and Plant One Million, a tri-state campaign to restore the region’s tree canopy.
