African Healing Garden

The African Healing Garden is truly meant to be a place to restore wholeness to mind, body and spirit.  It has fruit trees, herbs, flowers, water and a restful atmosphere.  The stresses of everyday living can sometimes become seemingly unbearable.  So the garden wants to be the place where solace and peace of mind can bring about a wholeness to those who enter its gates.  One section is called the Leopard's Lair.  It is  designed to provide an outdoor classroom for children's activities.   We want to offer community youth an opportunity to participate in a special Virtual Reality Project for which we are now asking for support.

We sincerely thank all of our previous supporters that have assisted in allowing us to reach our goal.  We will be having sod installed in the Leopards Lair.  W e have purchased and installed a bench that is made in the Image of a leopard and will be purchasing two more benches for adults. We will be purchasing a linear current booster for the pond pump to keep it from burning out.
For safety reasons we will be installing spot lights around the garden.  Finally, the completion of the paver installation will now occur.  We have become a member of the Audubon Society who is directing our steps for bird habitation.  We were chosen to be a part of a composting project.  We have purchased and planted numerous herbs flowers and fruit trees.

We have increased our monetary request to add the program mentioned above, the Virtual Reality project for the youth and to expand the garden to include a green house for plants.  This will allow survival of some plants that cannot, even though covered, withstand cold temperatures.  We also want to purchase a structure for the Healing Circle and one for the Leopard's Lair that will protect youth from rain and too much sun.
We invite everyone to become and remain a part of this vision.  Invite friends, family and neighbors to join as well.31127960_1593308716516918_r.jpeg
