Mayor R.T. Rybak will cut the ribbon on a new rooftop herb garden Tuesday at the Hennepin County Medical Center in downtown Minneapolis.
The garden is funded by a city grant. It will grow fresh herbs for food served in the hospital and special herbs for the traditional Hmong postpartum meal.
Food services manager Lisa Nadeau (nay-DOO') says the hospital is excited about getting the freshest ingredients for its recipes, and being able to accommodate the cultural preferences of its patients.
