Plan Your Week with PHS, including Saturday’s Fall Garden Festival


The next few days are a flurry of activity for PHS, so we thought we’d break it down for you. If you are somehow able to attend all these events and activities, you will most certainly earn our admiration and appreciation.

Pear Pairing – 09/19
Join PHS for a festive evening in the PHS Pop Up Garden. Celebrate autumn in the garden with samples of Subarashii Kudamono Asian pear wine, made from Pennsylvania-grown gourmet Asian pears, paired with slices of fresh Asian pears, as well as a selection of local, artisan cheeses and breads, courtesy of Fair Foods.

Also, you can purchase PHS hats and t-shirts, artful seed packs, pots and plants, and more at the PHS Pop Up Shop  during this event. Pear Pairing is a free event, open to guests 21 and older. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. More information.

Roots to Re-Entry Forum – 09/20
Learn about the PHS Roots to Re-Entry jobs training program as part of the Urban Sustainability Forum. This panel discussion among partners and stakeholders will discuss the strategies for (and importance of) getting once-incarcerated individuals empowered for employment. The evening discussion takes place at the Academy of Natural Sciences. More information.

Firstrust Day at the Pop Up Garden & Park(ing) Day – 09/21
Join us back in the Pop Up Garden for a presentation by celebrity chef Hope Cohen, presented by Firstrust, an official sponsor of the garden. Little Baby’s Ice Cream will be on site selling its delicious, locally made treats. More information.

Also, across from the garden, PHS will participate in the international Park(ing) Day by setting up a one-day mini-park in a metered parking space on Walnut Street. Learn more about Park(ing) Day here.

PHS Fall Garden Festival – 09/22
Start the fall season with a fantastic celebration! The 2012 PHS Fall Garden Festival takes place on the first day of autumn at the Navy Yard, an exciting location with a mix of historic structures and riverfront views. The festival is all about family, and we’ll have great activities for kids, shopping for adults, a preview of the 2013 Flower Show, and much more. The PHS Young Friends will bring back their popular Biergarten featuring Victory brews. Click here for details.

The Fall Garden Festival will also include two friendly competitions: “Garden Bounty” and “Garden Giants.” For entry information, click here.

Carla Hall and Daphne Oz of ABC’s “The Chew” will be there with live demonstrations, Q&As, giveaways and more! Catch The Chew weekdays at 1 pm on 6abc.

The Fall Garden Festival is free and open to everyone (although there are definite perks to being a PHS member). See you there!
