Creating a Peace Pole Garden

Maplewood Peace Pole Garden

This fall a barren spot at the heart of our campus has been transformed into a a centerpiece of peaceful mindfulness! A Peace Pole was installed with “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Arabic on rainbow colored plaques. The 3rd grade Green Team built a limestone raised bed, and volunteers at the Monarch Heroes garden work day tilled and planted it with a rainbow of nectar plants for pollinators. We can’t wait to see it in bloom next spring!

This project was made possible with funding from PTA Board Members, the No Place For Hate team and the Urban Forest and Monarch Heroes grants.
