Roots of Peace is a humanitarian organisation dedicated to eradicating landmines worldwide and rehabilitating the land to make it productive once more.
The roots of the organisation are in the heart of California's agricultural grape growing region.
With the generous support of the entire California wine industry, Roots of Peace aims to turn "Mines into Vines", which helps innocent farmers and families avoid a lethal harvest of bloodshed for future generations.
Founder Heidi and Gary Kühn have addressed the Vatican Congress on de-mining areas of the Holy Land. The website has a wide range of information about their activities.
