Gardens for Peace (G4P) is a new NAJGA project that brings communities together in Japanese gardens to promote peace. 14 North American gardens will participate in G4P’s inaugural year. Activities at participating gardens will take place around September 21st, International Day of Peace.
Follow along with us as we post regularly and share inside looks into the story of the project, explore Japanese gardens as conduits for peace, and spotlight our community involvement around peace efforts through G4P this year.
Through the warm inclusion of community organizations in this project, G4P aims to bring Japanese Gardens and local community members together to inspire inner peace by connecting with others working towards peace.
