The 25-acre area on the grounds of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Mich., used to be covered with grass that had to be mowed, watered and fertilized but otherwise, literally, just took up space. Today, it is a farm producing a variety of fruits and vegetables both for use in the hospital kitchens and for retail sale.
