Get the Kids, Get Outside and Get Healthy with a Family Garden

This blog was written by Ron Abell, Aramark’s senior executive chef at Fenway Park. Learn more about Ron Abell and Fenway Farms.

Springtime for me means baseball and gardening. Fortunately, I get to experience the best of both worlds, right here at Fenway Park. Fenway is not only home to the nine-time World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, but one of the finest rooftop gardens in all of sports. For me, there’s nothing like cooking with freshly-picked ingredients from the garden, feet away from the kitchen.

Got a business idea for improving your community’s health?

Imagine using an app to help you recover after a hospital stay. Or one that shows you how to save food destined for a landfill.

Every day, clever people are creating innovative solutions to tackle society’s problems. The American Heart Association wants to encourage even more of these bright ideas, especially the ones that can help overcome health obstacles.

If your heartbeat’s elevated during April, it might be due to tax season. Dealing with taxes and finances can be hazardous to your health! Maybe that’s why April is Financial Literacy Month; although, it doesn’t need to be a source of stress.

Move More at Work
