Vinnie Richter & MaryAnn McCuen tend to Kenmore Mercy Hospital's herb garden

The Food & Nutrition Department spiced up their "Go Green" efforts last summer by establishing a rooftop garden funded by a Mini Grant from the Foundation. The garden produces fresh, organically grown herbs and tomatoes for use in recipes for patients, visitors and staff.

Kenmore Mercy is growing a variety of culinary herbs including cilantro, basil, thyme, oregano, and parsley, as well as grape tomatoes.

"The herb garden serves as an extension of the hospital's Go Green program," said Kathy McAlpine, Go Green Committee Chairwoman. 

The garden is located on an outdoor patio off a second floor waiting room in the hospital's West Building.
