Expanding the season of Valentine Peace - from September to February - the Project works to develop Valentine Peace Poetry Gardens this Autumn - the planting season for bulbs to bloom for 2013.
The Dutch industry has baptised Tulip peace bulbs - 'Flames of Peace', 'World Peace', 'Pax'.
The idea here is to make these actually work for peace - starting with the International Day of Peace (21 September). The Summer of Peace project in the US (and worldwide) launched this June.
Take the opportunity to literally 'plant peace' and purchase Dutch peace bulbs through us this summer for your local, urban, school or community garden to plant with a statement, poem or wish for peace. Engage students or others in a lesson on peace or host a discussion, writing session or reflection: How am I growing peace?
Peace is understood on three levels and these links reflect each:
