Hospital’s fresh outlook

The folks at St. Joseph’s Medical Center have a new prescription to cure what ails you. It’s not medicine. It’s not bed rest. It’s a ripe cherry tomato, a crooked-neck squash or a spicy green pepper that’ll bite you right back. Volunteers with the hospital are harvesting fruits and vegetables from St. Joseph’s new garden, on a hidden 3,800-square-foot wedge of land that once yielded only tall brush and grass.
