Peace Crane Project is working to bring seeds from a second generation tree that survived the Hiroshima bombing in 1945.
We are committed to creating a memorial for all nuclear victims by planting this seed of hope from Japan and nurturing it into a symbol of peace.
These seeds will be propagated and nurtured to the point of being able to be transplanted by Quarryhill Botanical Garden. At that point, they will be planted in the Holocaust & Genocide Memorial Grove at Sonoma State University.
This project is endorsed by:
- Sonoma County Japanese American Citizens League
- Peace and Justice Center of Sonoma County
- B’nai Israel Jewish Community in Petaluma
- Fukushima Response
