Fresh, organic vegetables from our own gardens play a key role in nutrition & healing

Though the weather has been cool and wet, our plantings have remained strong and show promise of a good season to come.

We have enlisted the expertise of our friend, Bing Houston of Stony Hill Farms http://www.stonyhillfarmpa.com, to help educate and guide us through the growing season. succession planting, soil conditions, pest identification, sunlight exposure, watering, complimentary plantings are all factors that contribute to a successful garden.

Lettuce varieties, peas, potatoes, onions, cabbage, chard, broccoli/cauliflower, bush beans, beets, and carrots are just a few of the vegetables that are growing, with new plantings added weekly.

Our chefs thoughtfully plan nutritious meals for our residents, following the cues of the Mediterranean diet.  Fresh, organic vegetables from our own gardens will play a key role in many delicious and nutritious meals ahead.
