Unsung Women of Horticulture

Mon, Mar 16, 2020 | 1:00 pm


This event has been postponed.

Join us for a day celebrating women and horticulture. At 1:00 pm, meet us at the 13th Street entrance of Charles Library for a campus walk and plant tour with Kathleen Salisbury, director of the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University.
Next, we’ll head back to the Charles Library first floor event space for a 2:00 pm talk about the work and influence of the graduates of the Pennsylvania School of Horticulture for Women, which became the Ambler Campus. A pop up exhibit will feature rare herbals and botanical books and other materials from the Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center.
