US (TN): Urban agriculture at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Having a farm onsite adds to the wellness culture, not only by providing nutritious food but also by creating a sensory experience for patients to connect with nature.

Agritecture interviewed Kevin Krueger, the Procurement and Sustainability Manager at St. Jude, and learned about the hospital’s urban agriculture initiatives.
