Mission: By bringing countries together in celebration of their efforts in fostering peace and democracy we hope to participate in the building of a world less violent and more humane.
Results: We have International Peace Gardens blooming on five continents and 21 Bicentennial Peace Gardens in North America. The list is growing and this is accomplished completely through volunteer efforts.
Programs: We establish community peace gardens worldwide. In 2012 we developed the Bicentennial Peace Garden Project though New York State and Ontario, CA to honor 200 years of peace between Canada, USA and Great Britian.
The Bicentennial Peace Gardens that are located along either side of the border between the USA and Canada stem from the International Peace Garden Foundation founded by Paula Savage in 1992. The work, talents, and enthusiasm of volunteers are what makes this organization truly inspirational. My introduction and volunteer activities for the IPGF began in 1999. I was blown away with the concept Savage presented to me in a inspirational conversation about how the non-profit org began. You can learn the story and see the accomplishments of her vision in the website www.ipgf.org. Please visit there and the gardens and become inspired to spread the seeds of peace around the world to share with others and on the internet.
