Facilitating the removal of landmines and restoring the soil with bountiful vineyards & orchards in war-torn regions worldwide.
Thank you to all who supported our Roots of Peace 19th Anniversary!
The War Memorial Building is the historic site of the signing of the UN Charter in 1945, and it is fitting that we gathered in the Green Room on
UN International Day of Peace!
Together, may we plant the Roots of Peace on Earth…

From Our Supporters
I commend Roots of Peace for its leadership in international efforts to replace the detritus of war with the fruits of peace.
You have turned mines into vines by replacing the seeds of destruction with the seeds of life…and you have shown the world that even with modest beginnings, a partnership backed up by persistence can make a real difference.
The presence of Roots of Peace has saved lives, and helped to create livelihoods. I urge you to join me in supporting their important work.
As a California vintner, I am proud to return to my homeland of Croatia to turn MINES TO VINES—replacing landmines with bountiful vineyards. It is a miracle to see former minefields transformed into thriving grapevines, giving farmers the dignity to cultivate their lands without fear.
