The next generation of Flower Show exhibitors can be found in the educational classes of Hall B. There, college and high-school students design and build displays that show off all they’ve learned in the classroom.
You’ll definitely like “Ecolibrium,” the Temple University Ambler exhibit that represents a blend of French traditions with modern thought and innovation.
The classic components and underlying ideas of iconic French gardens, such as Versailles, inform this design, which incorporates concepts of modern art and sustainability.
Adds Temple professor Baldev Lamba, “It’s all really about balance—balancing landscapes and buildings, light and shade, and ecology and progress. We all need more balance in our lives and gardening is a great way to accomplish that.”
The University of Delaware is equally progressive with the edgy exhibit created by students of the school’s horticulture program. There, art meets science in a display that shows sustainable gardening and rain harvesting. Learn cutting-edge techniques and practices from these talented students. All their education may rub off on you!
