Jinwar runs project on medicinal herbs with Berlin group
Jinwar and Flamingo e.V. - Network for Refugee Women and Children have built up a partner project that focuses on the medicinal herb garden on both sides.
Flamingo e.V. - Network for Refugee Women and Children is in close and regular exchange with the women's village Jinwar in Rojava.
Together, they have built up a partner project that focuses on the medicinal herb garden on both sides.
The management of the garden in Jinwar has already begun. In Berlin, the group moved into a garden property in October and completed the preparations for the upcoming cultivation in spring 2020.
One goal of the medicinal herb garden in Berlin is to produce products from the garden through a crowd-funding campaign. For this purpose, we initially offer medicinal herbal teas and creams. The proceeds will go 100% to Jinwar.
In Berlin the project consists of activists from different areas. We are doctors, midwives, anthropologists, philosophers, gardeners and lawyers, Social workers, artists and therapists.
Hevrin Khalaf Garden in Berlin
In addition to the management of the medicinal herb garden, we want to create a place where political exchange, creative workshops and advanced training on women's science, as well as alternative healing methods can take place. It should become a place for participation and self-empowerment, away from stigmatisation and female victimisation.
The main team consists of women, but it should be a place for everyone! Following in the footsteps of Jinwar, everyone in Berlin is welcome to get involved in the garden or visit us.
