THANK YOU so much for filling out our survey for the Fall 2013 Yard Tree Program! 389 of you filled out the survey (!!) – this information is crucial for helping us improve our programming in the future.
Some of you had great advice for how to improve:
We take your advice to heart and will use this advice as best we can!
We also heard a lot of wonderful praise for our program:
- “Include a pick up location in Roxborough/Chestnut Hill” (look out for an event this spring at Gorgas Park!)
- “Would like to have had a reservation for the tree that I wanted.”
- “Gather volunteers to help elderly homeowners with tree planting.”
Also, congratulations to the winners of the raffle! Deborah J. from 19131 and Claudia S. from 19128 will receive a fantastic tote bag from the Fairmount Park Conservancy in return for filling out the survey.
- “Every time I have participated in this program, it has been positively a delight thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable staff and volunteers.”
- “Thank you for all that you are doing to help green Philadelphia!”
- “This year’s give away was GREAT! The event as very organized and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Each year gets better! Wish we had a bigger yard for more trees!”
- “We enjoyed the program and planted the trees with our grand-daughter – she spoke with your helpers and they told her that she can make muffins with the berries from the serviceberry tree, she is patiently waiting . . .”
Happy new tree owners at the tree giveaway event at Columbus Square Playground this past Fall.
