Welcome The Farm at St. Joe’s Brighton

The Farm at St. Joe’s Brighton is the newest crop in town! Dr. Tom Longley, Dr. Amy Berke and fellow residents from Livingston Family Medicine Center have started a farm at St. Joesph Mercy Brighton.  It is located by the East End Employee Lot near the Cancer Center. The first seedlings were planted Saturday, May 24, 2014 by residents, their families and volunteers. They planted herbs such as, basil, cilantro, rosemary and thyme. They also planted several  types of lettuce, spinach, mammoth sunflowers, broccoli, arugula, peas, bush beans and tomatoes. They will be planting peppers shortly and will need volunteers to come out and help. Check out pictures of the farm below and stay tuned for updates and future events!
