Starting May 28, every Wednesday from 11am – 1pm, Harbin Clinic is providing an opportunity for the Rome community to stock up on delicious seasonal vegetables from Owl Pine Farms and Tucker Farms. The farm stand will be at Harbin Clinic’s 1825 Martha Berry Boulevard location, with a large array of seasonal vegetables grown on sustainable farms without the use of synthetic fungicides, herbicides or pesticides.
Owl Pine farms is a small scale vegetable farm in Polk County that is committed to providing nutritious high-quality, chemical-free produce that is beneficial to the community and environment. Harbin Clinic chose Owl Pines as well as Tucker Farms in Armuchee, because of their devotion to supply heart healthy produce to the community. “We are bringing nutritious, high-quality, chemical-free produce to our entire community as part of Harbin Clinic’s focus on healthy living,” said Sarah King, Director of Wellness for Harbin Clinic.
The farm stand is an initiative of the HarbinSTRONG program for Harbin employees. Nutritional counseling, 5k training, online fitness tracking, membership to Vitality Fitness, and partnerships with local food farms are important parts of the program. By providing employees with the education and resources to embrace a well-balanced life, Harbin Clinic believes they will be able to better serve their patients.
