This current project elaborates the vision for a Healing Botanical Garden, displaying a mayor part of more then 100 medicinal plants with healing properties related to the treatment of cancer patients. Apart from displaying and identifiying the plants the vision of the garden includes citations from botanical, poetic and religious texts relating to those plants; a traditionally designed orchard; religious,cultural and historical references to the three monotheistic religions represented in Israel; metaphoric references to the process of healing; a workshop for curative gardening and an outdoor kitchen for the processing of medicinal plants and vegetables.
