Individuals with developmental disabilities who work at Sunshine's greenhouse have been toiling to bring a new farmer's market to the Toledo area.
The greenhouse will be open every Thursday from noon to 3 p.m. until the fall, selling a wide array of vegetables on a table ... hence their clever name: The Vege-Table.
"At the greenhouse, vegetables have started to grow like crazy," said greenhouse supervisor Kevin McColl. "It is great to see all of their hard work pay off and literally see the fruits of their labor through cucumbers, gypsy broccoli, green onions, zucchini, yellow squash, tomatoes, hot peppers, Patty Pan and herbs like dill, sweet basil, oregano, parsley, sage and rosemary."
In addition to providing supported employment to people with developmental disabilities, Sunshine is interested in making the world a greener, healthier place. Why not help the world, one Vege-Table at a time?
Sunshine is a non-profit organization in Maumee, that offers an array of services and programs for people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Sunshine provides residential, vocational and family support services to people with developmental disabilities.
Sunshine's mission is to create community among people with developmental disabilities, their families, friends and staff and does this by offering services that enable Sunshine to build relationships that enhance our lives through mutual caring and growth.

Sunshine, formerly known as the Sunshine Children's Home, in the community, has changed its name to simply, Sunshine," to reflect the fact that the organization now serves many adults facing disabilities in their lives.
