The new parental leave benefit was unanimously approved by City Council today, and solidifies Phoenix as a top employer in the region. 480 hours is among the most generous parental leave packages offered by any local government agency.</p> <p>“The working world has changed dramatically, and we are focused on meeting the needs of today's parents. The new, additional leave is extremely flexible to meet varying challenges that arise when a new child comes into the family," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This new benefit will help the City stay competitive and able to attract the best employees to serve Phoenix's residents."</p> <p>The change is intended to allow the City to maintain its competitive edge to recruit and retain a highly skilled and productive workforce while also providing working parents and caregivers greater flexibility in balancing their work and family commitments.</p> <p>“Our employees are our most valuable assets," said Phoenix City Manager Jeff Barton. “Adding parental leave to the many benefits offered by the City demonstrates our investment in them, which in turn, is an investment in our community."<br></p> <p>The City of Phoenix is actively recruiting for many essential jobs including police officers, dispatchers, solid waste and street maintenance workers, mechanics, customer service representatives, administrative professionals, accountants and more. Whether you're an experienced professional or just starting your career, working in public service offers many rewards.

Applications Open For Backyard Garden Programhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/environmental-programs/2435Environment & Sustainability8/3/2022 11:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2435/raised bed garden 2.jpghttps://youtu.be/Uj3hPslz1LYApplications Open For Backyard Garden Program<div class="ExternalClass2E69FAB9CB8548B8BC9F48356C8C7A19"><html>​ ​The City of Phoenix Office of Environmental Programs is beginning the next cohort of the <a href="/oep/backyard-garden" target="_blank">Backyard Garden Program​</a>, where participants will receive, at no cost to them, a garden system, including training, support, and maintenance (as needed) for one year.<br><br>Thanks to American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, the program already supplied 92 garden systems to community members in the first year. In year two, the program will provide 178 households with either a traditional raised bed garden (provided by <a target="_blank" href="https://tigermountainfoundation.org/non-profit-community-garden/">TigerMountain Foundation</a>), a regenerative agriculture system called a '<a target="_blank" href="https://lehrgarden.com/">LEHR Garden</a>,' or an aquaponics system (provided by <a target="_blank" href="https://www.nxthorizon.com/Home.html">NxT Horizon</a>).<br><br>“Literally I can go outside, harvest what I need, use it to cook that night. That's really convenient and inexpensive," said Xavier Jones, who has a city-funded aquaponics system in his backyard. He grew more than ten pounds of produce in the first few months.<br><br>Aquaponics systems grow produce on rafts floating in water. Inside the water are fish that provide nutrients for the plants, which in turn clean the water for the fish. Aquaponics expert and instructor Dr. George Brooks, Jr. makes the whole process simple for backyard gardeners.<br><br>“To see them as their individual plants start to grow and prosper and vine out and bloom and then produce fruit has been great," he said.<br><br>The City of Phoenix is looking for passionate community members with an interest in growing food and who are willing to make a yearlong commitment to backyard gardening. Gardens will be installed in either the fall of 2022 or early spring of 2023. <br><br>“It doesn't feel like work to me. It doesn't feel like a chore. It's something I'm passionate about," said Jayleen McGehee of working in the raised bed garden that was installed in her backyard for free. “I go outside, get sun, grow things, and I provide for my family, because food is expensive right now."<br><br>This program is for residents living in single-family homes only. Check out the <a target="_blank" href="https://phoenix-gov.formstack.com/forms/bgp_2_en">application</a> for the full requirements. Applications for the Backyard Garden Program are open until 11:59 pm on August 30, 2022.​<br><br><br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><p><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/oepVideo
