The Healing Garden in Chamchamal, a town originally populated through forced resettlement in Kurdistan-Iraq, provides a unique space for survivors of trauma and persecution to engage in trauma therapy through a variety of programs. Built in response to local therapists, the garden offers occupational, horticultural, play, art and animal-assisted therapies. Locals may use its weaving loom, pottery kiln, and various agricultural products to earn their own living, essential for long-term recovery. The self-sufficient garden is maintained by local staff and utilizes traditional and sustainable clay building techniques and grey-water treatment.
