Spring 2016

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Helps Communities Flower

Every spring, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) holds the Philadelphia Flower Show, the largest and longest-running indoor flower show in the world. Subaru of America, Inc. is the show’s premier sponsor. This year’s Explore America theme celebrates the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, with exhibits showcasing the natural resources of our cultural landmarks.

Making Fresh Food and Tree Hugging Possible

Revenue generated from the Philadelphia Flower Show ensures that a variety of PHS cleaning and greening programs prosper. For example, City Harvest has 140 community gardens delivering fresh food to 1,200 urban families each week during the growing season.

Wherever you live and whatever you do to make a difference, it’s all the same effort – benefiting you, your family, your neighbors, our world.

Subaru provides funding and vehicles for PHS staff to train gardeners how to grow their own food, helping to create longterm food independence. Also supported is Plant One Million, a multistate tree-planting campaign to replace the region’s disappearing tree canopy. The LandCare program transforms and maintains 10,000 vacant lots by adding compost-rich topsoil and planting grass and trees. And thanks in part to a grant from the Subaru of America Foundation, the PHS Green City Teachers program trains educators in ways to incorporate environmental lessons into the classroom.
