The buzz about the garden
During the past year, about 20,000 bees have been added to the St. Jude Garden to improve pollination in the space. St. Jude was one of the nation’s first hospitals to create a garden dedicated to growing vegetables and herbs for consumption by patients, families, staff and visitors. Most of the garden’s bounty is consumed in the hospital’s cafeteria. The garden team expects to harvest more than 7,000 pounds of produce from the garden in 2018.
