PHILADELPHIA ‘ARTiculture’ SHOW

Ride the Cornell Cooperative Extension Bus from Liberty

January 16, 2014

LIBERTY – This year’s Philadelphia Flower Show celebrates the fusion of art and horticulture in an extraordinary presentation of “ARTiculture” from March 1 to 9 in the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 12th and Arch Streets in Center City Philadelphia. 

The Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County are offering the opportunity to travel by bus to the flower show on Tuesday, March 4.  The cost is $75, which covers transportation and admission. 

Art and horticulture are part of a mutual admiration society that has been played out across centuries by the Masters – both gardeners and artists.  This year’s flower show joins together highly regarded museums with some of the nation’s finest landscape and floral designers to create a living canvas in “ARTiculture.”

“The show will celebrate everyone from Michelangelo to Monet, Picasso to Pollack, and Da Vinci to Dali,” said Master Gardener Program Coordinator Susan Dollard, “The public is urged to seize the opportunity to enjoy this phenomenal show without the hassle of driving!”

The world's longest-running and largest indoor flower show attracts over a quarter of a million people annually.  Proceeds support Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, particularly the City Harvest program, which feeds more than 1000 families each week during the growing season.

CCE participants will board the chartered bus at 7:45 a.m. on March 4 at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on 64 Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.  After departing, everyone can relax until arriving at the Philadelphia Convention Center, where the day is spent exploring the flower show.  Over 180 vendors will be selling garden furniture, hand-crafted jewelry, cut flowers, plants, tools and more.  All will re-board the bus in the evening to arrive back in Liberty by 9:00 p.m.

Registration with non-refundable payment of $75.00 is due by February 20.  For questions about the Philadelphia Flower Show or the Sullivan County Master Gardener Program, call 845-292-6180 or email smd243@cornell.edu.
