Growing A Garden For Health and Well-Being

A personal message from Dr. Holder:

I grew up having a backyard garden on 6th Ave in Park Slope frolicking with the butterflies. Prospect Park was an extension of my backyard. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden was my daily promenade on the walk home from high school, the Poconos was my all year round country retreat, and the Caribbean was my summertime tropical paradise. All of these early experiences helped to ignite a passion for greenery; however, the single most influential factor has been my mom — an avid gardener. The fresh herbs, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and carrots on our dinner plates came directly from her garden, and our yearly compost heap built by my parents is still a vivid memory.

My mom has graced the garden with her nurturing hands laying down the foundation of plants in the healing garden so that my patients can experience the therapeutic benefits of a garden as well.

When I entered medicine, the vision of a garden had been already firmly planted, but its role in therapeutics became quite clear as I embraced dermatology and aesthetic medicine. The culmination has been to incorporate it into a treatment plan. Now, each and every patient can experience the monumental place of our unique, serene green space in Brooklyn, positively affecting one’s mental & physical health & well-being.
