The Green Veteran
“The Green Veteran” is a weekly radio show on Turf’s Up Radio hosted by Brooke Ford. The purpose of the show is three-fold:
- Green Industry Education – “Turf’s Up Radio” is dedicated to educating the green industry professional, homeowner, students and all who have a desire to conserve resources to better help protect our environment. “The Green Veteran” weekly program seeks to support that mission by discussing green industry emerging technologies, strategies and best practices while also engaging industry experts live on the air to share their knowledge and expertise across various disciplines.
- Serve Veterans & Families – Since the beginning “Turf’s Up Radio” has been committed to helping our service members and their families (active duty and veterans). A portion of “The Green Veteran” weekly program will be dedicated to discussing various topics of interest that we believe may be valuable to our veterans and their family members.
- Music / Entertainment – Finally, we are focused on playing great music for our audience! We will play a wide range or rock and pop music each week for our listening audience to enjoy. We want our listeners to walk away each week having learned something and having had a chance to relax in preparation for the coming week.
