Lankenau Medical Center opens first hospital-based wellness farm in Wynnewood

PHILADELPHIA — Lankenau Medical Center is celebrating Earth Day by officially opening its Delema G. Deaver Wellness Farm in Wynnewood –  the only hospital-based wellness farm of its kind in the Philadelphia region.

Lankenau Medical Center and Greener Partners of Collegeville, Pa., have teamed up to provide farm-based educational programs at the site to help students make connections between where their food comes from, how it grows, and how fresh food can positively affect their health. More than 10,000 students are expected to learn how to harvest and prepare fresh recipes.
