Frank R. Howard Memorial Hospital in Willits, Calif., has been reaping the bounty from a five-acre Commonwealth Garden located across the street. The small (25 licensed beds) critical access hospital operates the 93-seat Roots retail restaurant on its premises, which has become a magnet for community diners as the place with “the best food for the best price,” according to Ananda Johnson, director of the Commonwealth Garden.
