Memorial Green Day

The Unity Gardens had a presence today at the Memorial Hospital " Green Day Event " This year will be the first year for the Memorial Hospital Unity Garden . They were showing a 3D virtual view of their planned garden . Aside from the Memorial Unity Garden several Memorial employees have been proactive in being leaders for many other Unity Gardens throughout the city . Its awesome that Memorial is enthused about feeding the community healthy food !!
