The Sadako Peace Garden in Santa Barbara was dedicated on August 6, 1995, the 50th anniversary of the Hiroshima tragedy, as a project of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, in cooperation with La Casa de Maria. It honors all who work for peace and a world free of nuclear weapons.
Two distinguished Santa Barbara artists, Isabelle Greene and Irma Cavat, gave of their time and skills to create the landscaping and the artistry of this magic location.
“I ask you to come up and submerge your hands into the water and then bless this space before you leave.”
-Don George, Director, La Casa de Maria.
“Hundreds of residents and visitors of Santa Barbara, young and old, have come to the Sadako Peace Garden to reflect and to commit, or recommit themselves to the task of peacemaking.
The Garden is open to the public. Please feel free to come back at any time, and spread the word among your friends.”
— Walter Kohn, Co-Chair, Education Committee, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.
