    Where the Money Goes
    Proceeds from the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show benefit the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and its initiatives, including
    the PHS Plant One Million tree campaign and PHS City Harvest,
    which provides locally grown, fresh produce for underserved families.
    Gardening, Greening and Learning programs are integral to the PHS tradition. From civic landscape and parks initiatives, to the restoration of major public landscapes such as the grounds of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Logan Square Swann Memorial Fountain, Race Street Pier and Avenue of the Arts: PHS has involved thousands of city residents in an ongoing effort to make the city a more livable, likable and vibrant place to live and work.
    The Flower Show brings to life the mission of PHS, helping our community to know plants and gardens as natural wonders while enabling PHS programs and projects to address the complexity of green issues in our city.
