Temple's Philly Flower Show Display- Ecolibrium

A few of the students, staff, and faculty who designed, grew, and installed elements of the display- Grace, Kathryn, Diana, Matt, Peter, Kelsey, Cindy, Patrick, Dennis, and Mike

Temple's Flower Show display is finally installed!  I was happy to see the plants leave my greenhouse and go to their intended home in the wonderful display at the Convention Center.  Our display won the prestigious Bulkley Medal from the Garden Club of America.  The Bulkley Medal is awarded to a special exhibit in the fields of horticulture, botany, or conservation and “must be one of exceptional educational merit, which increases the knowledge and awareness of the viewing public,” according to Flower Show organizers.

Students, staff, and faculty have worked nine months planning, building, growing, transporting, and installing the display and those involved couldn't be more pleased with the result.
