The Peace Garden
The Peace Garden was completed in 2005.
The garden was designed by our Head Gardener Robert
Scott, and constructed by our Gardening team.
The focus of the garden is a tree given by the National
Federation of University Co-operative Associations of Japan.
The sapling was grown from seed from a tree (Firmiana platanifolia)
which miraculously survived the Hiroshima holocaust at a point
1.3km north east of the epicentre at 8.15am on 6 August 1945.
It was presented in order to pass on the love of peace
and respect for living things to future generations and share with
us a vision of a world free from nuclear weapons.
