Happy New Year to Everyone !
Philippine Horticultural Society in partnership with Quezon City government , members, student organizations, NGO groups , major plant societies , bloggers , hobbyists and the general public are invited to the 40th annual plant show .
PHSI is celebrating a lot of milestone on their RUBY anniversary , Hence the font and color is ruby . This event is in special partnership with the city government, helping create public awareness thru their lectures and seminars , tourism , health , wellness advocates and creating livelihood opportunities to ordinary people.
Since February also falls as LOVE month, the theme ” Green is LOVE ” is very appropriate as color motif. GREEN means a lot of things like green is the color for renewal, life, growth , good vives and good feng shui.
For Filipino-Chinese , Green also means MONEY and Prosperity because Chinese Lunar New Year falls on February 8 .
Some of the highlights of the event includes: landscape exhibits, flower floats , street dancing , guided tours and special events like painting competition , daily raffles among others.
The much awaited Special Events are the floral floats , street dancing which is similar to the famed Panagbenga festival of Baguio. Metro Manila and nearby provincial tourists and visitors can see them without the hassle of traveling long hours going north.
There will also be a flower arrangement and painting contest by high school students. Forty participants will compete in the floral competition. The following day, students will paint the floral arrangements made the previous day.
The event is from February 4 to 15 which falls on the LOVE month or Valentine’s Day .
People can buy living plants or flowering plant to give as gifts to their love ones. Instead of cut flowers , why not give something unique and fancy instead of the usual ones.
There will be commercial stalls area from different agricultural companies, backyard hobbyists, provincial plant growers from different parts of the country .
There will be daily lectures and seminars by respected speakers coming from different fields of expertise and educational backgrounds.
