Fort Worth Botanic Garden
3220 Botanic Garden Blvd. Japanese Garden
Fort Worth , TX

Gardens for Peace is a North American Japanese Garden Association project that brings communities together in Japanese gardens to promote peace. 14 North American gardens have agreed to participate in G4P’s inaugural year in 2022. 

Activities planned at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden include a raking of the karesansui (dry garden), a forest bathing experience, creating your own patterns in one of our tabletop Zen gardens, and an opportunity to enter our newly renovated tea house, have a cold drink and hear about tea ceremonies. The Fort Worth Japanese Society will be doing Japanese calligraphy and lead an activity with a wishing tree used during the Tanabata Festival in Japan. 

Guests promote peace by writing wishes on a ribbon, which will be hung on the wishing tree.

This event is included as part of regular Garden admission and will be held in the Japanese Garden. See website link below for schedule.
