The situation regarding COVID-19 has already made economic changes. Many people are losing their jobs and are fearful about the coming time after the pandemic ends.

To address this problem Center for Peacebuilding has offered their land on the Peace farm in Sanski Most for the community to plant vegetables and work on food production. This will give the members some kind of control and security in these uncertain times. Selmir, CIM’ volunteer shares his thoughts:

“We have so many natural resources that remain unused. Although this situation has terrible consequences, and the phrase which comes up in the news “the world will never be the same” implicates firstly a horrifying scenario, we think it can be an opportunity for growth and changing of our mindsets and finally behavior. We need to get back to agriculture and food production and use our resources. The benefits are enormous!”

In recent months in our garden of opportunity we have planted many vegetables, made a corner for flowers and every day we see more and more progress We also cleaned the forest and made some banches for sitting. We are so happy to see our garden becoming more beautiful and full of new fruits every day.

Our local volunteers were such a great help for us and also the Volunteers club in Sanski Most they also gave their help and support in developing the garden.

As the situation is slowly getting better, Center for Peacebuilding will host the Peace Camp at the Peace Farm on the 26th of Juny till the 3rd of July, of course respecting all epidemiological measures prescribed by the crisis headquarters.

We now have two volunteers from Banja Luka, Milena and Slavica, former Peace Camp and Caravan participants, which decided to stay at Peace Farm and help us out in the garden and being a help for our future activities there.

In the coming months we can expect to pick our vegetables, which will of course be distributed to our volunteers who have helped us through these months. We also made nettle juice that goes on sale to local people.

Hello everyone!

On behalf of everyone here at the Center for Peacebuilding we would like to wish you all a fantastic New Year.

2019 was very successful year for the Peace Farm (Garden of Opportunities). We had many events such as Peace trainings, Peace Camps, marking our traditional Peace Week which got a new dimension called Peace Fest, volunteer work in the garden and many exchanges.

We are now planing our activities through the year and also preparing for the spring in the garden. Many new plans and ideas we are having for this year, hopefully in the next report we will have something big to share with you.

Also we received a lot of request from international volunteers that would like to come to help at the Peace Farm.

We want to thank you all again for your continued support, you make our dreams come true!

Peace and Love,

The CIM Team

After a busy summer full of tranings, camps, new people and volunteers coming to the farm. Each action and person made their contribution to a better and more beautiful Peace farm.

In September we had a Peace fest as a new dimension of celebrating our International Peace week. Workshops and panel discussions were organized at the Peace farm as well as dialog sessions with participants not only from Bosnia but also from all around the world. At the farm we built a parking lot and also a stage where we had our opening ceremony as well as concert for choirs for the International Peace day.

Since the last update about our farm, we had three new internships from Germany and Sweden which came living at the Peace farm and learning about the culture and history of Bosnia and Herzegovina and also our organisation. We also had two volunteers from The Netherlands, they were very helpful about preparing the garden after seeding and picking the vegetables. 

Winter is coming where everything gets more quiet and colder. We are on the way of planning new farm projects and changes.

We sincerely thank everyone who contributed that our idea of the Peace Farm, the place of harmony of people and nature, lives and develops every day.

This summer at our farm it was pretty busy. We had a Peace training for Youth from Krajina and also a Peace camp for youth from all around Bosnia. Our young praticipants had the oppurtunity to sleep in tents at the farm, and in addition to workshops on reconciliation, identity and much more, they had fieldword where the participants had the oppurtunity to clean around the farm, work in the garden and forest, and building a park in the forest and also made a volleyball field.

Our vegetables are now grown and we are in the process of picking up the tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and more. We are selling and giving them to our local people who love to eat organic food.

In september we have a Peace fest where we expect hounders of young people coming, and also for that event we are building a parking and a stage for our opening ceremony and also a concert for the choirs that we are planing for the International Peace day.

In july we had also a Belgium scouts group that came to see our Peace farm and help us in the garden and else what has been needed. 

We sincerely thank everyone who contributed that our idea of the Peace Farm, the place of harmony of people and nature, lives and develops every day.

In Spring we planted the whole garden, now we are watering and waiting to get fresh and organic vagetables. CIM's volunteer club and the local people from Sanski Most helped us to sow the garden, and we had fun days all together working around garden.

We are glad that we managed everything to prepare around the garden because most of the spring were big rainfalls.

In May workers from Austria started digging the lake, they will be coming in June again to finish it up, and hopefully we will have soon a big lake at our farm. 

Our Peace Camps are near the corner, we are now looking for participants, working on the program, and preparing the whole farm to be ready for it. 

At the farm we have a new employee, and we are grateful for the help and work that he provides. International volunteers are also coming at our farm, we had three girls, one was from China, and two of them were from Swizterland. In the coming period, we are expecting a scouts team from Belgium, who have shown interest in in visiting our farm and helping us on our upcoming activities.

We sincerely thank everyone who contributed that our idea of the Peace Farm, the place of harmony of people and nature, lives and develops every day.

Peace and Love
