The Healing Garden is a center for natural holistic and alternative health education. The Center began as a concept in 2015 with the knowledge that according to statistics, out of 35% of Americans who access preventive health care, only about 19% or 7 people are African American.

We deeply believe in the power of using preventive medicine and we are committed as an organization to educating our community to improve outcomes.The death rate for African Americans was generally higher than whites for heart diseases, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and kidney disease.
