Flower Show Sustainability Efforts

2022 Philadelphia Flower Show Sustainability Efforts 

The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation’s largest horticultural event. For the second year in a row (and only the 2nd time being held outdoors in the Show’s 194-year history), the Show was held in FDR Park – a designated historic landmark for the South Philadelphia Community. The park has various playgrounds and recreational fields, along with a skate park, which allows the area to be enjoyed by many. Here at PHS, we recognize the importance of protecting the authenticity of the park and are committed to leaving a positive impact.  

To demonstrate PHS’s commitment to environmental sustainability, support of healthy neighborhoods, and dedication to accessible horticulture in the Greater Philadelphia region, we have continued the outstanding efforts of the 2021 Philadelphia Flower Show Green Team to work towards a “zero waste” event. The Green Team focused on waste diversion, sustainable disposal activities, and resource conservation at this year’s Show.
