A Better Tomorrow
It was great to be able to volunteer at Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse with the Verdantas Philadelphia team. The Playhouse is such a unique and historic asset to Philly kids. We were helping to plant and weed their mulch beds before our visit was cut short by summer storms, but we’re hopeful they will have us back in the fall for more yardwork and to brainstorm solutions for the drainage and erosion issues we observed firsthand during the downpour!
It was rewarding teaming up with Verdantas coworkers to undertake a clean-up on the Blackstone River utilizing kayaks and canoes. I have been volunteering as a water quality monitor for the Blackstone River Coalition for the past nine years. The health of the Blackstone has improved significantly over the years through efforts like this.
Senior Project Manager
My internship experience at Verdantas was a great learning experience for a young engineer. The team is very welcoming, friendly, and wants to put you in a position to showcase all your strengths. It gave me the opportunity to learn, grow, and finally apply some of my knowledge about engineering to real world projects. Getting the chance to go from intern to full-time employee was very exciting. This experience prepared me for the projects I now handle as a full-time team member.
