The City of Sanctuary national website has a huge amount of resources designed to help any group or organisation working with people seeking sanctuary. Some of the most relevant resources include:
Anna Locke has created a permaculture design for a ‘refugee garden‘ using the layout and plant lists of the Babur Garden in Kabul as her inspiration.
It is designed so it can be scaled up or down to any size. Anna has kindly made her design freely available and her hope is that groups can use it to design and build gardens which are welcoming for refugees and asylum seekers.
