STONY BROOK, NY — A Long Island hospital has created a unique "farm to bedside" concept promoting healthy eating for patients.

Stony Brook University Hospital has a rooftop farm. It's also used to teach local children about nutrition and gardening. A dozen kids were at the farm Wednesday for a program to learn about healthy eating.
