New York hospital serves food from rooftop garden
Lenox Hill Hospital chefs pick fresh organic herbs and fruit from the garden daily to use for cafeteria meals.
NEW YORK—Urban gardens are popping up all over the city, and now there's one in an unusual location: Lenox Hill Hospital. NY1's Erin Billups filed the following report.
The roof on top of Lenox Hill Hospital has been transformed into an oasis of sorts—the brain-child of the hospital's Integrative Health and Therapies Director Robert Graham.
"We've got this pineapple mint which has a great looking leaf. We have this chocolate mint. We've got spearmint," Graham says. "To my knowledge, this is the first ever edible, organic, teachable, educational, roof top garden in New York City."
