Great initiative!
This initiative is innovative and exciting. The process of healing from the trauma of violence and displacement by integrating soil and plants has a tremendous positive impact on individuals and communities in general. This initiative also provides bridges between Colombians and Venezuelans. By working on micro-farms, they will be able to share not only their ancestral practices of cultivation of medicinal plants, but also their physical and emotional benefits, and their life stories. They will be able to find shared experiences and sympathize with others. Besides, I see that this project can provide opportunities, especially for women, who in situations of refugees or migrants face particular risks in their process of integration into hosts civil society. Traditionally in Colombia, women have been carriers of knowledge in medicinal plants and their holistic uses.
