A food revolution in health care has begun at Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital in Michigan, USA. The quality and appeal of food has been made a priority simply because nutritious, good-tasting food provides the energy and nutrients patients need.

The recently launched, Greenhouse is full of healthy fruits and vegetables, many of which are used in the café and in patient meals.

With a variety of interesting and innovative programs, patients and community members can come to the Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital Greenhouse to learn about the importance of growing and eating organic, healthy, nutritious fruits and vegetables.

Education Features in the Greenhouse

As the perfect field trip destination for school-age children or a unique locale for group outings, families and children of all ages, a day at the Greenhouse includes tours, activities, tastings and more.

•The difference between organic and conventional farming/gardening
Environmentally responsible growing techniques
•Gardening for children
•Growing without the use of petroleum based products
•Hydroponic (non-soil based) growing systems
•Natural fertilization & pest control
•Nutritional and flavor benefits of organic food

The hospital is also creating the Culinary Institute for Health Care, the first of its kind in the world, to train industry chefs from around the world to follow the Henry Ford model in educating the community, encourage healthy eating and promoting overall wellness.
