Philadelphia Flower ShowPhiladelphia Flower Show
 
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society teamed up with Art-Reach at the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show last month to offer a tour tailored to meet the needs of people who are blind and visually impaired. During this tour, Art-Reach groups were led by a trained docent who used descriptive words to describe the visually stunning flower show displays.
 
Highlighted on the tour was Film Takes Flight! by Subaru of America, Inc. Members of the group learned about the sounds that different birds make, how they communicate and, for the first time, were able to touch part of the exhibit – an experience enjoyed by all!

Subaru Loves the EarthSubaru Loves the Earth
 
To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Foundation (NPF), Subaru has stepped up as a premier partner to help sustain the national parks for the next 100 years.
 
Subaru most notably supports NPF through the Subaru “Share the Love” event. To date, nearly $3 million in donations have been or will be disbursed across the country to help preserve and protect more than 71 national parks.
 
Other ways Subaru helps protect the planet include partnering with the Subaru Traveling Trainer program with Leave No Trace and cleaning up more than 20,000 pounds of trash from our oceans and waterways with United By Blue. We also encourage Subaru retailers to sponsor “Subaru Loves the Earth” events in their communities.

Your Love Story
 
I love my car and my boyfriend, so this picture is very dear to my heart. EJ and I met for the first time at a local Subaru meet and bonded over our matching WRXs. We have been inseparable ever since! It's common to be found spending the weekend in the garage, working on our cars for the upcoming car show season.

Insider Tips
 
Upcycle: DIY Tire Planters
 
In celebration of "Subaru Loves the Earth," we’re giving Subaru Insiders instructions for making the tire planters featured at The Gardener's Studio Presented by Subaru exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show.
 
 • Find used rubber tires of any size. Consider the location and the scale of the area being decorated. The tires can be left natural rubber or painted for a splash of color.
 • Drill some small drain holes (approx. 1/2" diameter) in the bottom of the tire where the plants will be placed.
 • Use 3/4" or 1" hemp or sisal rope for wrapping and knotting to make a hanging strap.
 • Various hardware types can be used to hang the planters. We used pipe fittings and flanges as shown. You also can use screws or bolts through the tire to attach it directly to a wall or fence. (Be sure to consult a hardware professional to determine the proper reliable and safe mounting technique for the weight.)

 • Place a small layer of crushed stones that are slightly larger than the hole diameters in the bottom of the tire to help keep soil from falling out.
 • Select plants that will be favorable to the climate zone. A variety of greens can be used alone or mixed with small perennials. Consult your local gardening shop or expert for help.
 • Use planting soil to fill the tire cavity when planting. Add moss or bark chips for a finishing touch.
