In October, 2019, Shinzen Friendship Garden was invited to a meeting with staff members of California Health Sciences University to discuss the Green Legacy Hiroshima Peace Tree Project. Yamabe & Horn Engineering’s co-founder Ronald Yamabe is the current sitting President of the Shinzen Friendship Garden in Fresno.

The group was advised that thru a conversation between Miho Yoshida and Dr. Miko Rose, Assistant Professor, Department of Adult Psychiatry, Michigan State University, at a university conference in Denver, Colorado, there is a GLH Initiative, a global volunteer campaign to disseminate the universal message of trees that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. Currently seeds and saplings for the A-bombed trees are growing in more than 30 countries.

The trees are being planted around the world to promote peace, harmony and goodwill.
