While everyone at PHS is looking toward the 2013 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, we can’t help but feel nostalgic for some of the great events from the past year.
We welcomed 2012 with the sights, sounds, and scents of Hawaii at the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. Visitors were awed by the magnitude of the space that was transformed with palm trees, waterfalls, orchids, and hula dancers.
The 2012 Pop Up Garden at 20th and Walnut Streets was a favorite getaway spot for many Philadelphians and visitors to the city. Even though we faced some record high temperatures, it was a welcome oasis to dine, play, or read a book.
Shortly after the close of the Pop Up, PHS hosted our first PHeaSt at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. Hundreds of people gathered in our warehouse to sample farm-to-table dishes created by some of the region’s best chefs and growers.
We also enjoyed seeing so many friends and PHS members at our open houses at PHS Meadowbrook Farm, the Fall Garden Festival at the Navy Yard, the new holiday Pop Up shop in Chestnut Hill, the Community Greening Awards–it was definitely a year to remember.
From all of us at PHS, we hope you’ve had the happiest holiday season and we look forward to sharing another year of gardening, greening, and learning with you!
