Into The Roots:
Meet the Farmer behind the plants, Keith Sims.
Born and raised in Columbus, Keith joins MercyMed as a Public Health Advocate and MercyMed Farmer. He was a Medical Assistant at MercyMed for two years. But after a year of apprenticing at Jenny Jack Farms, an organic fruit and vegetable farm in Pine Mountain, GA, he returned to MercyMed in another role.
His goal is to educate, empower and enable our patients and community about healthy lifestyles. His passion is for helping people taking ownership of their health through nutrition and connecting MercyMed patients to healthy, affordable food. He’s excited to bring his farming and community health expertise to MercyMed.
MercyMed Farm offers all types of seasonal veggies and fruits: tomatoes, peppers, corn, zucchini, squash, beans,onion, lettuce beats, and kale.
This summer season they are growing a lot of tomatoes, squash, peppers, beans and cucumbers. Along with some basil, tulsi, eggplant, and okra.
