These impact goals come together in a commitment to gardening for the greater good. We invite you to become a part of a team dedicated to transforming lives in the Greater Philadelphia region. At PHS, we are looking for employees that diversify our views on effective gardening solutions and expand our outreach.

Living Our Values

Each day a wide range of PHS staff come together for a common purpose: to make a difference in the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond.
