The article reports that Denny Seibert, manager of dietary services at 277-bed Flower Hospital in Sylvania, Ohio, is using locally grown produce in his cafeteria. For Seibert, locally grown equates to produce being grown on the hospital's campus. In June, a hydroponic garden, a garden planted in a nutrient system other than soil was planted about 150 yards from Seibert's office. The hospital's garden is planted in a coconut potting material and has around 2,000 different plants.
