Garden Staff Helps Artists Flourish

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

 

In this season, the Garden of Peace and Hope is thriving with beautiful roses blooming. Because of restrictions from the government, the Garden and the National Gallery are closed to exhibitions. But it is open for visitors to enjoy the Garden of Peace. We had an exhibit scheduled last month with approval from the ministry, but due to safety issues, the government canceled it.

Kitchen Gardens Provide Food for Families

Valley of Ali*, Afghanistan

 

As in years past, our demonstration kitchen garden looks so good, especially at the time of harvest!  It provides families and our staff with a variety of crops such as cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, etc.  in the summer and early autumn.

 

We also invite villagers to show them that it is possible to plant vegetables in their fields and give them some fresh onions and lettuce as a gift, so that we can make friends with them.

Hopefully, the situation at the Garden of Peace and Hope will get better soon. In recent days, the Ministry of Culture said it would allow us to continue our exhibitions and activities if the pandemic does not rise among people. We have some problems due to the virus, yet we continue to work in the Garden.

Minister of Culture Praises the Garden

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

 

As the coronavirus spreads all around the country, the city has been in lockdown for several months. The Garden of Peace and Hope looks beautiful throughout this challenging time. Unfortunately, we cannot host any exhibitions during these restrictions. Yet I continue to encourage artists to motivate them for the next opportunity when we can once again display their works.
