Peace Garden

We are in the process of designing the Peace Garden. May I request our members to support this project with their manual assistance, donating towards buying shrubs and plants, watering and sharing their ideas to make the best out of them. All gardens will look simple and easy, but the planning and efforts will be herculean if we take it seriously and keep it sustainable.
