DESCRIPTION: TOUR OF STONY BROOK HEIGHTS ROOFTOP FARM – Feeding our Patients, Educating our Students
A tour of the rooftop farm at HSC level 3 is now in its third growing season. The farm was partially funded by a New York state Department of Health grant, which will term March 2014. Produce harvested from this farm is grown utilizing organic, sustainable farming. All food harvested is fed to our patients to ensure maximum nutrient value, while minimally impacting our environment. With the help of students, and volunteers our farm has managed to educate and excite, and will hopefully continue to grow. Learn about organic gardening and the variety of produce on the tour.
