Our Organic Garden is in Full Bloom

At Creekside Medical Plaza we believe in comprehensive health care that encompasses the body, mind, and spirit. So it only makes sense that we grow organic fruits and vegetables in our back yard for our staff to enjoy and take home to their families.

Many of the diseases and medical problems that patients have can be traced to an unhealthy lifestyle that they either currently live or have lived in the past. We recognize that medicine plays a very important role in health, but so does taking care of ones body. We believe that good health requires people to treat their bodies well by exercising, eating well, drinking plenty of water, sleeping, and spending time with loved ones.

Growing our garden has been an interesting and pleasant experience, and we love to sit outside to enjoy the fruits of our labor. My favorite are our gorgeous heirloom tomatoes that I manage to put on everything. We also have kale, collards, bell peppers, butter lettuce, strawberries, eggplant, onions, and herbs.

Vegetables from the grocery store are good too if you are unable to grow your own. We just think growing a garden is a fun and healthy way to get more fruits and vegetables in your life.
