New Flowers and Courses to Come!

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

 

Again, this spring has showered the Garden with lots of rain. All the flowers are blooming beautifully! The past winter was the coldest yet in Kabul. Our “leap day” exhibition was enjoyed by so many, yet we have not been able to hold exhibitions since then, due to the security situation.

Farmers to Fight Malnutrition

*Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

We had a cold winter in Yakawlang this year, and even though it is springtime, the trees haven't budded, yet.  Presently, we have distributed more than 16,000 poplar cuttings! As we give the cuttings to the local farmers, we also teach them how to plant hybrid poplars. So far, 20 farmers have been trained this year.

COVID-19 training

Currently, the whole world is in the grips of the greatest biological crisis that has faced mankind in more than a century.  Almost 4 weeks ago when it was only a blip on most people’s radars, we sounded the alarm and rallied the troops.  This included establishing a Global Crisis Management Team and sending our staff far and wide with the important message of how to identify the Corona Virus and prevent the spread of this deadly disease.

Heavy Snowfalls Limit Garden Activities

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

 

It’s been a cold winter in Kabul with lots of snow! We haven’t had any exhibitions at the Garden of Peace and Hope for the past month or so due to the snow. The gardener and I have been working to protect flowers from the snowy weather by covering them with plastic. There is still snow inside the Garden.
