Even the smallest amount of physical activity can pay health and wellness dividends. The hospital is proud to support local opportunities for being physically active and eating well. That includes working to make Greene County communities more walk-able and ride-able through our work with Humphreys Park (Linton City Park) and the City of Linton.
Greene County General Hospital is proud to partner with and support local farmers’ markets. The Linton Farmers’ Market doubles SNAP, WIC, and Senor Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program Vouchers. Visit the manager’s tent at the market to find out how you can leverage benefits to purchase fresh, local, healthy food.
The Linton Farmers’ Market holds it’s opening day in May at Humphreys Park (Linton City Park). The market runs through September and is open every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
We know that every moment of movement we give our bodies contributes to our overall health. Even just a walk around the house or a trip to the mailbox will pay dividends in health and wellness. No matter what you choose to do, just moving your body will help you feel and be healthier!
If you are getting just getting started, be sure to set small goals for yourself: walk around the block, or download our beginner’s Walking Schedule.
