Open house: Tea and Tour of The Farm at St. Joe’s this Saturday


Please join us for a Tea and Tour at The Farm at St. Joe’s
Saturday November 1, 1:00-4:00pm
The Farm at St. Joe’s, 5555 McAuley Dr., Ypsilanti
RSVP to Daniel.Bair@stjoeshealth.org or 734-712-HOOP (4667)

Come visit the Farm and warm up in our hoophouses! Warm up with complimentary tea and refreshments, learn about tea and tisanes (and how you can grow your own plants for brewing), and see what’s growing. We will offer guided tours at 2:00 and 3:00, including a tour of the accessible hoophouse built in partnership with the Eisenhower Center, which provides outpatient services and residential programs for those recovering from traumatic brain injury.

The Farm at St. Joe’s is the nation’s first hospital farm, featuring a weekly farmers’ market, three hoophouses, a staff community garden site, patient therapy opportunities, and food sourced into hospital patient meals. The Farm embodies St. Joseph Mercy Health System’s commitment to improving the health of the community by modeling good health and nutrition and influencing how food is produced and distributed.

Dress for the weather and wear shoes that can get a little dirty; feel free to bring boots if you want to explore the property. Learn more about the Farm and volunteer opportunities at stjoesannarbor.org/thefarm.
