Tune in for a conversation with Jamileh Naso (President of the Canadian Yazidi Association), Nafiya Naso (Healing Farm Operator), Brenda Tjaden (Consultant at Sustainable Grain) and Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson (Charleswood United Church), who explain how and why the Yazidi Healing Farm came to be and define its key partners, challenges and successes.
