Sam Lemheney, Chief of Shows and Events at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and director for the strategy, planning, and execution of the annnual Philadelphia Flower Show is our guest.   We discussed the history of PHS and its work within the Valley to reduce vacant spaces, provide tree canopies and natural areas in underserved areas, sponsor food growing and sharing and job training for the recent incarcerated before we discussed this year’s outdoor show which kicks off June 5 at FDR Park.  The eight day event will draw visitors from all across the country, and provide a major boost to the hospitality industry in food, transportation, hotel and other attractions.  Due to travel restrictions this year’s show will feature all  US vendors and exhibitors and the theme, Habitat: Nature’s Masterpiece, will be gardener friendly and emphasize environmental practices.  There will be distinct areas featuring gardening, design and plants, with new food and merchandise vendors in each area.  Sam spoke about improvements PHS will be making to the park that will help with the large permanent renovations planned by the city.   The event will begin with a Member’s Day sneak peek on June 4th, the annual gala the evening of June 5th and a Flowers After Hours dance party June 12th.  Tickets will be timed for safety’s sake.   For more information about programming, educational opportunities, membership and Flower Show details go to
