The Farm at St. Joe’s Brighton has started harvesting!


The produce at the farm is finally ready for harvesting. Last week, Dr. Longely and fellow residents harvested basil, red kale and mixed greens.  They then packaged the produce in plastic serving containers.The containers were set out in the lobby at Livingston Family Medicine Center for patients to take home and enjoy for free. The residents distributed 30 containers of mixed greens, 16 containers of basil, and 12 large containers of kale, all in just 2 days! The distribution has been a success so far, and the residents are excited to provide fresh produce to patients in their community. Next, collards, chard and several types of herbs will be ready to harvest and distribute.

Check out the photos below of the fresh produce set up in the lobby.
