But agriculture can be a way for refugees and injured soldiers to not only feed themselves and earn income, but a way to heal their scars--both external and internal.

"It gives me a sense of inner peace, that I don’t feel anywhere else," said a female veteran in the film
Terra Firma, "I can be a hero in my community, by being a farmer."

And Ibrahim Sawara Dahab, a farmer from Somalia says: "In America, you need experience, and my experience was goats," said Ibrahim Sawara Dahab. He started his own goat meat farm and store near Phoenix in 2010.
