Flying Kite Media, an online magazine that highlights the efforts of progressive businesses in the Philadelphia area, recently debuted a totally cool video about the PHS Tree Tenders training program.
The video demonstrates the diversity and devotion of PHS volunteers, and showcases the recent accomplishments of the Plant One Million program. If you’ve ever thought about becoming a Tree Tender yourself, you’ll definitely want to check out this video!
Thanks to Flying Kite for the shout-out!
