Her Excellency the Most Honourable Lady Allen walks the labyrinth at the Peace Garden located at the Hope Botanical Gardens in St Andrew after it was officially opened on March 28, 2019.
The Peace Garden was established by the Rotary Club of St Andrew in partnership with Nature Preservation Foundation, the operators of the Hope Botanical Gardens. The CHASE Fund provided financial support to establish the garden with a waterfall, gazebos and a meditation labyrinth.
The Peace Garden is meant to be a space for meditation, contemplation, relaxation and a focal point for discussions, mediation and conflict resolution. The Rotary Club intends it to support the long-term, peace-building efforts within the overall national dispute resolution framework and increase capacity for conflict resolution at the community level.
