SPRINGFIELD, IL – AlignLife of Springfield has created a children’s garden at its Montvale location. The chiropractic center launched the initiative to help encourage younger patients to eat healthy, move their bodies, and start a garden at home.
AlignLife of Springfield owner Dr. Bryne Willey said his family had enjoyed planting the garden to share their passion for growing what they eat with the center’s patients. “We want to encourage families to live a healthy life and lead by example,” said Dr. Bryne. “Whether the children at the center are being adjusted or accompanying family members, our youngest visitors can help tend to the plants and harvest the fruits and vegetables. We hope everyone will enjoy the garden, but we cannot wait to see the children snacking on fresh produce.”
AlignLife of Springfield Chiropractic & Natural Health Center treats patients of all ages, offering chiropractic care, acupuncture, weight loss, supplements, and adrenal analysis.
AlignLife of Springfield was included in this year’s Good as Gold Business Honor Roll for volunteerism and community work from The University of Illinois Springfield, Junior League of Springfield, and United Way of Central Illinois.
“We believe strongly in giving back to our patients and community. We hope that anyone passing by the center can enjoy the garden,” said Dr Bryne.
Dr. Jason Goldstein also treats patients of all ages. “We pride ourselves on being a place that our patients enjoy visiting, and so the children’s garden is an extension of that,” said Dr. Goldstein.
The children’s garden consists of four raised beds containing peppers, tomatoes, herbs, radishes, lettuce, kale, and edible flowers.
In addition to the children’s garden, AlignLife of Springfield collects non-perishable food items for a local nonprofit in July, hosts an annual trunk or treat in October, and has a gift drive for local families for the Family Service Center in December.
