    Spotlight: Trevose Horticultural Society celebrating 99 years

    For 99 years the Trevose Horticultural Society (THS) has been a presence in the Bucks County area and surrounding communities.  

    THS is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. and the Garden Club Federation of PA.

    This year’s annual Standard Flower Show, “North to Alaska” will be hosted by St. Ephrem’s Catholic Church, 5400 Hulmeville Road, Bensalem tentatively scheduled for Friday and Saturday, August 12th and 13th.

    This annual event offers an expansive schedule that includes artistic design classes, 135 horticultural classes and educational exhibits.

    A special workshop will be offered at the Bensalem Senior Center’s Bensalem Summer Art Program for students who enter the Youth Award classes. 

    At the PHS Philadelphia Flower Show, members volunteer and also chair, exhibit and merit ribbons in the forced bulb classes, horticulture displays and design classes. 

    In summer 2021, members donated over 900 pounds of homegrown produce to the Warminster food bank. 

    Members adopted the Feasterville Fire House planter and will continue to maintain the landscape with colorful seasonal plants.

    Residents at the Delaware Valley Veteran’s Home on Southampton Road are recipients of greeting cards, hand-knitted lap robes, shawls and Afghans.

    Monthly meetings feature informative and interesting topics on a variety of garden-related, environmental or design themed programs and workshops. 

    Following a brief business meeting and program, members and guests enjoy a “Little Show” and refreshments.

    An informative monthly newsletter is included in the annual dues.  

    THS meets every third Tuesday (except January) at 7:00pm at the Bensalem Senior Center, 1850 Byberry Road, Bensalem.
