The Problem

Something Good in the World's Children's Peaceful Garden is designed by and for children, to promote peaceful and imaginative play, inspire creativity, demonstrate sustainable practices, teach about alternative energy systems, grow permaculture gardens, make a safe place for wildlife, support bees and beneficial insects and pollinators, and enhance children's abilities to become responsible caretakers of our planet now and into the future.

Our Plan

The Children's Peaceful Garden project is underway and will continue this spring to be added to and grow more edible and perennial fruits, flowers, herbs, and vegetables, add native, shade-loving plants to our greenroof chicken coop, improve our low-wind generation system and seesaw pump, add to our apiary and bee sanctuary, upgrade our composting operations, install another rain barrel and more drip irrigation, all to demonstrate and teach children how to conserve water and energy, what it means to have a zero carbon footprint, and why to make healthy choices by eating local, organic, and sustainable.
