Did you know that Stony Brook University Hospital has a rooftop farm? Items grown on the farm (tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and much more) are used as part of healthy and delicious patient meals. It is a small thing we can do to help our patients heal. Support our rooftop farm by liking us on Facebook! www.facebook.com/pages/Stony-Brook-Heights-Rooftop-Farm/343499379063389.
