PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — It is not a place where you would expect to see a farm, but a hospital and health care team in metro Detroit thought differently.
They believe a farm on hospital property is a perfect opportunity to change the conversation from illness to health for patients, doctors, and an entire community.
7 Action News Reporter Andrea Isom went to where the crops are growing in Pontiac.
It is a beautiful venture and there are so many ways to get involved.
Hospital colleagues and local members of the community are invited to volunteer at the farm by e-mailing OaklandFarm@stjoeshealth.org.
Members of the community interested in participating in the farm share program can sign up at https://stjoesfarm.org/st-joes-oakland-farm-share/.
