Hospital’s Rooftop Garden Provides 7000 Pounds of Organic Veggies a Year for Patients

High above the Boston Medical Center, there is a natural vegetable nursery that feeds patients, staff and the poor.

The Boston Medical Center (BMC) is very helpful and has 567 beds for patients located in Boston, Massachusetts. It is the largest safety net for Level I Emergency Injury Clinics.

The rooftop farm of the Boston Medical Center is the main ranch of the Boston Clinic, with an absolute roof area of ​​7,000 square meters and an additional 2,658 square feet of development space.

Made by over a hundred volunteers, it started with the brainchild of Dave Maffeo, CEO and with the help of administrations plus Robert Biggio, senior VP of Offices and Administrations who contributed greatly with the help of the BMC Development Office.

In an effort to find someone to contribute to this idea and to BMC, Dave worked with Lindsay Allen, who is currently the manager of the BMC Roof Farm and Higher Ground Farm’s Ston Siddardar.

The ranch was planned and introduced by Recover Green Roofs based in Somerville, and the Higher Ground farm is involved in the development of many products.

Includes different herbs, beans, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, black tomatoes and pumpkin. Each of these products develops in natural soil.

The ranch also provides a natural environment for the bees which also gives them a nice development environment.

However, its most important asset is the nutritional diet for those who need it most, somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 pounds of it each year.

Maffeo says the explanation for all this is that nutrition is a cure.

Lindsay Allen, a home supervisor, deals with treating the soil framework to remove dirt and mix different yields to avoid mistakes and come up with useful soil solutions. She says she views the garden as an eco-system, as much as possible.

As a “wellbeing network” medical clinic, BMC generally serves lower salaries and older patients. It offers free meals to low-wage families, as well as planting, cooking and maintenance classes.

Along these lines, the social security industry needs to consider issues that affect and contribute to well-being, for example, access to food and accommodation. It includes that it is essential that the nutrition provided in human services offices, for example emergency clinics, must have great nutritional benefits.

Mafeo adds that because most places do not have good caring conditions, they face nutritional problems for their patients. However, he thinks it’s something they owe their patients and the community.

This clinic is of good character and is designed to help its patients feel comfortable. We’re looking for more of these clinics across Boston.
