To many terrible things in this world. After South Asian tragedy I was so
sad.  almost paralyzed. And it is cold in Toronto to go to a garden for

I want to share a good news I received from Sarajevo. They have  project
started and supported by American Friends Service Committee-Quaker
Organization. The project have a minimal support from the local government
and official leaders(none). At the other hand there is a great need for this
kind of programs. The main idea is to try to heal the wounds of the war and
to produce some food.  To rebuild the civic life and community. I think
whoever visited Toronto and participated in the ACGA Conference this October
know about the project.  It was 12 gardens established after the war, around
1200 people participated. One of these gardens operate on the jail land so
inmates are gardening together with others. It is real healing garden for
them. They donate food to local orphanage.
The god news is that they received approval to start 17 new healing gardens.
Around 3700 people will be able to have plots. and it is all over the
Bosnia. They need seeds and fruit trees. so any help will be appreciated.
The priority is food production. Contact  Davorin Brdjanovic-Program
director for Europe region:

I wish you a lot of gardens. Wherever is a garden there is a hope.
