Horticulture EVENTS

We strive to provide a variety of networking events for Women in Horticulture in the Delaware Valley. Our aim is to rotate the location and style of events; from round tables, to garden tours, to networking events. By changing venues, and formats our goal is to ensure that all advocates of Women in Horticulture find a comfortable and convenient place to expand their connections.

Providing a place to connect with other professionals and cultivate mentorship relations. We aim to connect mentors with mentees and encourage co-mentoring.

Women in Horticulture

 Events:

Book Club: Silent Spring

Meet up with the Women in Horticulture Book Club to discuss Rachel Carson’s classic Silent Spring.  During the seventeen years she worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Rachel Carson learned about the problems of pesticides in the environment and the effects on people, plants, and animals. Undaunted by the chemical companies’ hostility and by the public’s support for pesticides, she wrote Silent Spring, which caused a major shift in public consciousness about the environment.

An afternoon tea, coffee and snacks celebration at historic Andalusia House and Gardens. Andalusia is located on the Delaware River just north of Philadelphia. Andalusia is the ancestral home of the Biddle Family and surrounded by native woodlands and beautiful gardens.

Women in Horticulture will be treated to garden tours, house tours, and an exhibit on Letitia Glenn Biddle. We will enjoy snacking and mingling on the porch as we celebrate historic and contemporary women in horticulture.  This is a rain or shine event except in the case of high winds and/or thunder and lightning.

Providing a platform for meaningful discussions about women's perspectives in horticulture and its industry is a goal at each event. Workshops focus on horticulture and professional development to help attendees round out their skillsets.
