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.

We are now in the spring preparations for our garden. It's getting nice wetter, so our garden has to be prepared for planting. We even managed to plant some sorts such as onions, peas, mangold and others. At the farm we have now chickens, geese and ducks, they are in the spring mood, more fresh and organic eggs are coming so our selling is getting bigger and bigger.

We also have volunteers which help us to prepare for further activities, even at the beginning of this month we were joined by a volunteer from Russia, who takes care of our animals. 

A lot of things we will have going on this year. In may there will be a lake made in the area of our farm. Also this summer there are planned three peace camps, that's why we are most focused on preparing the farm for these events and getting all the materials we need.

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.

Our peace farm has about 10 hectare of land,where we have 6 hectares  of cultivable land, which two hectares are sown.  The farm has also a house which is arranged in a home for our international volunteers. Our volunteers come from all around the world who were always very helpful for every activity and work at the farm. We also have a loto f people and volunteers from Sanski Most, and we are so thankful for every single one of them. We renovated the kitchen, living room and bedrooms. Our volunteers will always greet you with a welcome, they also take care of the animals, crops and provide all the informations about the farm for our guest. On the farm we currently have a stable with our sheeps and goats, also this year they got little baby's. We have built a chicken coop for a free range chicken egg farm, we got about hundred chickens now on our farm and we started selling fresh, organic eggs for out citizens.We can't forget our geese who are very loud but also very friendly, but no one can resist our farm cats.They are just so loveable and cuddly. On our two hectare land which is sown, we have a lot different seads such as wheat, corn , beans, zucchini,  tomatos, peppers and a lot of other vegetables. Our garden, which is completely organic, has given many fruit.We are very happy about it because it succed, everything is ecologically sown, and everything is sown with permaculture methods, thanks to the effort of our volunteers. Also what we did on the farm was mowing grass, baling the straw, peeling corns and much more. Also along to our farm we have a large part of the forest. There is a lovely resting place with a big table and benches, also you can enjoy the fresh and clear air there for just taking camly a walk. We also go with our volunteers and visitors in the forest to pick up forest fruits, mushrooms and herbs. 

 Through our Basca Mogucnosti (Garden of Possibilities) initiative, we want to establish a place of great diversity, regarding not only plants that will be growing here and creatures using them, but also concerning spontaneous and long planned gatherings as well as the creation, exchange and implementation of ideas, told jokes, spoken languages, learned lessons, relationships and thoughts that hopefully will also be growing here.

Dear all,

Warmest greetings from Sanski Most!

First of all we would like to say that our Peace Farm is becoming increasingly active and richer on a daily basis. This summer at the Farm we sang, played, camped, socialized, educate, worked and much much more.

It has become the center of our events, so in June and July we had the Village Harmony from USA. Village Harmony is a group of artists who sing songs from different traditions, including songs  from Bosnia and Herzegovina and the rest of Balkans.

Also, this summer, CIM hosted WT2 - Working Together Winning Together - a camp for high school students organized by Youth for Peace. The participants of the camp stayed at our Peace Farm where workshops and socializing were held.
As usual, there are international volunteers at the farm that help maintain the farm, crops and animals that live on it.
Our garden, which is completely organic, has given many fruit thanks to the efforts of our volunteers. 

This year's Peace Week was also held at the farm where workshops and educations were held, and on the 6th and final day of Center For Peacebuilding’s Peace Week, 21st September were a celebration of International Peace Day. The activities started on the CIM Peace Farm around, and featured a gathering of more than a hundred people, which included local guests, visitors from other cities in Bosnia, and international volunteers. It featured a children’s play in the woods called “Little Red Riding Hood From the Wolf’s Perspective”, as well as rehearsals for the choir concert later in the evening. .

There is always something happening on the farm and we still have a lot of plans for the future. For now, we are extremely satisfied with the support from the local community we receive and we hope that we will soon raise funds so that we can start building a new stable for our animals.

Our greatest pleasure is that we receive positive feedback from people who have visited the Peace Farm and who always find a way to come back.

THANK YOU!!!

Peace and Love

Hello all!

Spring and summer brought a lot of new activities to our Peace Farm. So let's get started.

In April, we started with a free range chicken farm. Thanks to our donors, we have bought 250 hens and we have up to 150 eggs a day. We have connected with the local comunity so that the eggs always find their customer. Of course, we are investing all our income in the further development of our farm.

Our permaculture garden grows day by day, thanks to our volunteers and all CIM's friends. We've already started to harvest fruit from the garden.
One of our recent projects are the families that we bring together from the local community so that we can all promote togetherness and peace building together.
Our farm is always open to visitors and this summer we have with us volunteers from Europe, Asia and USA who have spent time and contributed in development.
With all of this, we are working on a design for rain water containment that will be deployed on the farm and will help us in the dry summer period to maintain our plants and vegetables.

One of the things that we are most proud of is that this year our traditional Interreigious Iftar was hosted right at the Peace Farm, where about a hundred people of different religions enjoyed Ramadan iftar.

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&love
