in-memoriam In Memoriam | Al Edling

Al Edling

We are sad to report the passing of long-time friend and supporter Al Edling. Al was the owner of Bloodgood Nurseries in Horsham and donated his time – and plants – to our organization. His fruit trees line the driveway between the barn and farmhouse at the Penrose-Strawbridge Farm. Al and his wife Eleanor also graciously hosted our Holiday Supper at their home several years ago.

Al was from Roxborough and received a BS in Ornamental Horticulture from Delaware Valley College in Doylestown. In addition to owning Bloodgood for 47 years, he was also a horticulturist for National Park Services at Independence Hall, and co-director for Job Corp in Massachusetts.
