I have been coming to the Flower Show my whole life. From the Civic Center to the Convention Center, I think that I may have only missed two or three Shows. But, I didn’t know until just a few years ago that the show is a fundraiser, and all proceeds support PHS and its Philadelphia Green program.

PHS is a nonprofit membership organization based here in Philly.  Our mission, to motivate people to improve the quality of life and create a sense of community through horticulture, is embodied in many different ways. We are the people who make Philadelphia a greener place: we work to plant trees all over the city and on the street where you live. We work with communities to revitalize vacant lots. PHS’s Philadelphia Green program helps create and maintain parks, neighborhood gardens, and public landscapes (including the Azalea Garden at the Philadelphia Art Museum and Logan Circle).  We are an affiliate of Meadowbrook Farm in Abington- a retail nursery and estate with incredible gardens. PHS also host thousands of events for gardeners and green-minded people all over the state—including the Philadelphia Flower Show.

By buying a ticket to the Flower Show you are supporting all that we do here at PHS and Philadelphia Green. You are helping our work and making Philadelphia a more beautiful, vibrant, and green city.

Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you at the 2009 Flower Show!
