Founded in October 2010, The Holistic Community started out as the Sarasota Holistic Chamber of Commerce as chapter of the member-based Holistic Chamber of Commerce international organization for holistically-minded professionals, practitioners, business owners, artists, eco-friendly businesses and resource providers (which includes lawyers, CPA's tech-savvy, etc). In 2020, The Holistic Community reformed as a 501C3 organization to focus on more of the local level, and become The Holistic Voice in our Community. We focus on education, networking and helping people find holistic, natural and eco-friendly products, services and solutions and the people who provide them.
