Vegetables of the Healing Garden
Throughout history people gathered what was grown around them not only for food but for medicine. They would eat what was in season which helps to keep the body in balance. In today's global market we have diversity like never before though finding what grows local without pesticides and chemical fertilizers would be the best option. We are also blessed with today's innovative ways to grow some of our own food using containers, raised beds, pouches and hanging gardens to name a few.

We've gathered some of the most common fruit and vegetables that have medicinal qualities as well as vitamins and minerals for overall health. We hope you'll find this helpuful and invite you to visit this website often as we are continuing to add information that will help you along your healing journey.
