is to provide battered women the opportunity to momentarily step out of their crises and to learn how to garden and farm in the urban setting. We aim to do the following:
- To provide peaceful settings in which the women can safely reflect on their situation,
- To provide these women with useful skills, such as gardening, farming, and functioning in a business setting, and
- To provide these women with mentors that can reinforce their newly-attained skills.
