Philadelphia Federal Credit Union staffers once again have grown green by planting vegetables and herbs in the PFCU Garden.

Aside from keeping up with the annual tradition and enjoying the team-building activities, PFCU was recognized for its efforts to enhance the city's green initiative by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for the second year in a row. This year, PFCU was honored with second prize in the "Community Garden" category.
