Growing A Better Future

Peace Blossoms

What does peace mean to you? Bring your family and explore the connection between origami and peace through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a 12 year old girl whose life was forever changed by the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. Look at our beautiful peace lilies and learn how to make your own out of origami paper.
