Subaru Returns as Exclusive Sponsor for the 19th Consecutive Year to Help Spread PHS’s Mission of Gardening for the Greater Good
Today, Subaru of America, Inc. has announced that, for the 19th consecutive year, it will serve as the exclusive sponsor of the Philadelphia Flower Show, the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event. The show, produced by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS), runs from February 29 – March 8, 2020. This year’s theme, “Riviera Holiday,” is inspired by the world’s Mediterranean gardens and will immerse visitors in the sights, scents and tastes of the Mediterranean region’s landscaped gardens and culture.
“We are proud to continue our sponsorship of the Philadelphia Flower Show for the nineteenth consecutive year,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and Chief Executive Officer at Subaru of America, Inc. “At Subaru, we are deeply committed to serving our local community, as well as the environment through our Subaru Loves the Earth initiative. In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, we continue to educate attendees about preservation and how they can be more planet-friendly.”
Main Exhibit: Subaru Zero-Landfill Garden
As the exclusive sponsor, Subaru will celebrate this year’s event with various floral displays that incorporate the “Riviera Holiday” theme, while educating attendees on sustainable gardening and landfill-free design. The all-new 2020 Subaru Outback is integrated into the natural setting to complement the garden display. From a mix of Mediterranean-inspired elements and bold sustainable features, attendees will discover components such as reclaimed cedar slat walls, terracotta roofing, drought tolerant plants, and recirculating fountains made from recycled tiles.
Inside the main Subaru Zero-Landfill Garden exhibit, the automaker will host several daily gardening workshops known as “Potting Parties” at the semi-private ‘Subaru Outback’ garden exhibit. Hosted by horticulture designer, Tu Bloom, attendees can create their own vibrant container displays and learn about sustainable growing practices along with fun recycling ideas for the garden.
