The Healing Gardens launced May 2015 at the MVCC in Edison, New Jersey. The children of Kids Need Support 2, tilled the grounds, pulled weeds, placed new organic soil on the grounds and planted seeds, plants, vegetables, fruit, and flowers. There were over 75 children who participated in this event of Enviromental Education, Agriculture, Science, Health Awareness. The grounds of the MVCC were also being restored by Kids Need Support 2 for beautification. The team at the MVCC worked alongside Kids Need Support 2 to bring progress to the site to ensure the program would be successful, safe and enjoyable.
The vegetation in the garden was selected by the children who found different foods to help combat many diseases and disorders they battled. The garden grew and the children under the supervision of the Healing Garden leader, Ms. Trudie, worked daily in watering, pulling weeds, and keeping the garden clean to promote healthier living and combat health disparities in children throughout the community.
