Benton Harbor: Healthy & Mobile
he Be Healthy Berrien mobile farm market, a partnership with Andrews University's student garden, is ready to roll, starting today.
The truck, carrying locally grown produce to communities with limited access to fresh foods, will run five days a week to seven locations, reported Nicki Britten, Berrien County Health Department's director of community health.
Garth Woodruff, a professor of horticulture at Andrews who oversees the student garden, said 16 items, including Swiss chard, collard greens, kale, romaine lettuce, cucumbers and herbs, will be available in the first weeks.
That will grow to as many as 40 as the season progresses, he said.
