Many of our community members – torture survivors – find being in nature extremely healing. Being in peaceful gardens, members often feel calmer, more able to relax and enjoy themselves.
At our gardening sessions, community members know they will be safe and welcomed, which is incredibly important to them. It also helps survivors improve their physical health through gardening and being outdoors.
Regular gatherings in the garden also help members reduce feelings of isolation, build new safe relationships and help build trust and confidence.
