NEW Health’s Summer Video Series
In May of 2017, NEW Health began a rooftop garden at our 15 Tufts Street location. Students from the Harvard-Kent School and the Charlestown ABCD Head Start Program visit throughout the summer to learn about gardening, help grow the crops, and sample some of the fresh produce. Produce from the garden is then used in our monthly nutrition sessions, open to patients and community residents.
However, this year like so many other events and programs, COVID-19 has disrupted our ability to share this experience with students. This is why NEW Health has decided to start an instructional video series documenting our rooftop garden from initial plant to last harvest.
We hope students can watch these videos and follow along at home with their very own plant. Luisa, our NEW Health Nutritionist, teaches how to transplant seedlings to larger pots. Enjoy!
