The Grays Harbor Community Hospital has partnered with local farms to provide fresh produce to patients.
The Grays Harbor Community Hospital Foundation announced that the partnership between the hospital and Aberdeen Farmer’s Market, Randall Street Community Garden and Sky Island Farms will provide a weekly basket of fresh produce, or the opportunity to grow their own garden, to a select number of patients.
Patients in this program will be chosen by their provider and asked if they would like produce delivered if they are homebound, picked up at the Aberdeen Famer’s Market on Sundays or if they would like to plant their own garden and grow vegetables throughout the summer. These food “prescriptions” will be given to local families based on health and financial need.
Liz Ellis of Randall Street Garden and Kate Thorn of Sky Island Farm will be providing the gardening expertise and produce for this program.
If you would like to donate to this project or any project funded by Grays Harbor Community Hospital Foundation, please call or email Nancee Long at [email protected] or 360-537-5136 for more information.
