Mission Statement

Develop a life empowering, leadership skill set for impoverished minority communities by establishing a working knowledge of personalized and community gardens in District 3.

Description

Legacy Heritage was founded in 2020 by Consuelo Bradley in Montgomery (Montgomery County) Alabama. For the past 11 years she has been an accomplished African American entrepreneur. The vision of this 501 (c) 3 organization emerged during the height of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Mrs. Bradley took the lead in developing green spaces for public gardens and meeting areas to share the therapeutic and medical benefits she derived during quarantine.
