Peace campaign underway at Temecula Rose Haven Heritage Garden

TEMECULA, CA – A place of tranquility is offered in Temecula.

Local non-profit association Temecula Valley Rose Society organizes its first “campaign for peace” with a “picnic for peace” on November 19 at the Rose Haven Heritage Garden of TVRS. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and residents are welcome to bring their own lunch and see six peace poles added to the garden. The poles of peace are translated into 43 languages, with the message “Let peace prevail on Earth”.

Roses will bloom in the fall for photos and TVRS members will be available to answer gardening questions.

“A peace pole is an internationally recognized symbol of the hopes and dreams of the entire human family, who watch in silent prayer for peace on earth,” according to www.worldpeace.org/peacepoleproject. “It is estimated that there are more than 250,000 peace poles in every country in the world, dedicated as monuments to peace.”

TVRS members have contributed more than 1,400 volunteer hours to the garden project and more than 35 donors have supported the cause, according to the nonprofit organization.

“We have been humbled by the community support for our Rose Haven Heritage Garden,” said Virginia Boos, president of the Temecula Valley Rose Society. “We strongly believe that the garden is a place where residents can stop and smell the roses and spend time in nature. It is normal that the garden is also a place where residents come to celebrate the mission of peace.

“November is a beautiful month of gratitude and peace,” Boos continued. “We are thrilled with this new addition to the garden and truly believe it is important for our community to have a place to visit to contemplate peace.”

The Rose Haven Heritage Garden is located at 30592 Jedediah Smith Road, Temecula, CA 92592.

Founded in 1991, the Temecula Valley Rose Society is affiliated with the American Rose Society. As a non-profit public benefit corporation, its purpose “is to encourage the appreciation, study, display and cultivation of roses,” according to TVRS.

“The Temecula Valley Rose Society strives to build community bonds through nature and hosts educational seminars and demonstrations throughout the year for children, families, and rose garden enthusiasts,” according to the organization. .
