The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will present an exhibition, "A New American Botanical: The Whimsical Art of MF Cardamone," in the PHS McLean Library. Melding elements of specimen mounting and 18th and 19th century botanical illustrations with the imaginative randomness of Surrealist collage methods, Cardamone creates playful interpretations of the intersection of nature, taxonomy, and popular culture. She collects plant specimens and combines them with images and words that result in visual narratives that reveal the science, history, and beauty of her plant subjects.
The PHS Tree Tenders program offers hands-on tree care training for residents interested in greening their neighborhoods. Course content covers tree biology, identification, planting, proper care, and working within your community.
