2011 Philadelphia Flower Show Awards

Mar 08, 2011

This year's Philadelphia Flower Show Exhibit is entitled "Post-Industrial Agriculture and Urban Art." 

We've received three awards so far!

  • PHS Sustainability Award
  • Special Achievement Award of the Garden Club Federation of PA

 

Our exhibit demonstrates ways to revitalize city lots.

We used the Philadelphia International Flower Show’s theme of “Springtime in Paris” to show how post-industrial agriculture can revitalize cities.

The show was held March 6-13 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

“We are delighted that DelVal will be part of this year’s presentation, “Springtime in Paris,” said Pennsylvania Horticultural Society President Drew Becher.  “The Philadelphia International Flower Show will bring together participants from this region and from many other countries for a fantastic show in 2011.”

DelVal’s exhibit, entitled, “Post Industrial Agriculture and Urban Art,” offers creative, inexpensive and high-impact solutions for overgrown, vacant, trash-infested city lots. The exhibit explores ways to revitalize these lots, turning them into valuable community resources. The benefits of this transformation include locally grown produce, environmental enhancement, sensory gardening, and expressions of local artistry.

The Flower Show is the nation’s premiere horticultural event, an award-winning destination consistently ranked in North America’s Top 100 events.

“Springtime in Paris” transports winter-weary guests to the romantic and stylish streets of Paris, through acres of remarkable gardens, cafes, parks and floral displays.  Exhibitors include floral designers, landscape architects, organizations, universities and schools.

Proceeds from the event support the work of Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
