IDEX Health & Science team members at the Life Science Optics Center of Excellence in West Henrietta, New York, began building a community garden to provide fresh, healthy food for employees last year.

Prior to joining the team at the Optics Center of Excellence, Optical Filters Manufacturing Associate Khalil Aboushama, maintained a garden of his own at the Semrock facility in Gates, New York. When that location was moved to the current John Street location, he wanted to continue serving his colleagues.

Inspired by Khalil and his enthusiasm for gardening, IH&S team members partnered with him to start the new garden.
