Location: Virtual Via Zoom

Seth Pearsoll

Seth Pearsoll, PHS Creative Director, will discuss the history of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s annual flower show which started in 1829. It is the oldest and largest indoor flower show in the world, attracting over 250,000 visitors each year.

A preview of the Friends Plant Sale from May 6 to 7, will also be covered.

Seth Pearsoll’s role as PHS Design Director for the Philadelphia Flower Show allows him to contribute to a variety of design tasks and creative projects. He focuses on finding and creating relationships with exciting new designers and creators for the Flower Show. Seth received his B.A. in English at the University of Nebraska and did his master’s coursework at the University of Iowa in the field of Hispanic Linguistics. While there, he found that his real passion was landscape architecture, so he dropped out of the Linguistics program to begin a master’s degree program in Sustainable Planning and Design from the Conway Design School in Massachusetts. After completing his masters, Seth began working in Philadelphia at a number of landscape design firms, eventually finding his way to PHS.

Registration will close at 4:00 PM on the day of the program.

This program will be recorded.

This program is eligible for 1.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEUs
