A therapeutic garden for your body mind and spirit
The Healing Garden Image Gallery
The Healing Garden began at its current location in the Fall of 2010 at a property we share with the Yoga Center here in Fredericksburg, Texas. What began as a personal healing journey after a time of loss has become a sanctuary for all who pass this way. The Garden is primarily made up of edible and medicinal plants that are not only beautiful to look at but also useful in so many ways. It takes us back to simpler thyme in history when gardens were an essential part of every home. We are grateful for this Garden and would love to share it with you. Please check out the therapeutic services we offer here.
