At the entrance to the Garden of UNITY, you’ll see a sign with Words of Wisdom from the Earth Charter.
Welcome to the Garden of Unity! We have lots of Seed Ideas growing here. You may want to nurture a few of them with your time or talent. We’re growing them for the Global NatureFest in October.
In 2015, all 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in their 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Each of us can support one or more of these Global Goals through action in our local communities.
In the Gardens of GLOBAL UNITY, everyone is working together for the betterment of the world. We’re all Partners for the Global Goals! How can you help win the Goals by 2030?
WHO will help to win the Global Goals?
“Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play. The arts, sciences, religions, educational institutions, media, businesses, nongovernmental organizations, and governments are all called to offer creative leadership. The partnership of government, civil society, and business is essential for effective governance.” – Earth Charter

The Alvarez kids have a plan! They’re using the Global Goals as a blueprint for a World House! Watch their 3-minute video.
In his Nobel Peace Prize Lecture in 1964, Dr. King said,
We have inherited a big house, a great “world house” in which we have to live together
You can help build Martin Luther King’s WORLD HOUSE, where everybody can get along together.
LISTEN TO THEIR SONG. Who will sing along?
SEED IDEA: What if people of different faiths and cultural traditions sang songs of peace and unity? Imagine a World House Community Sing!
September 11 is the first of
11 DAYS OF GLOBAL UNITY.
“Each year, September 11 is a moment to honor all our human brothers and sisters who perished at the hands of hate. It gave the rest of us a chance to feel compassion and empathy. It also gave so many people an understanding of the power of love by volunteering in their communities as a symbol of hope. The nation and the world need a remembrance of this as well, a reminder that as hard as it is getting, Love Is Gonna Win. I hold on to this thought every day for strength.” – Lanny Smith
Karen Palmer identified the Garden of Unity at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville, Florida — accompanied by a Cicada Chorus!
Dalton-Klessig Memorial Park, dedicated in 2004.
Location of Garden/Park: Senna St. In Omak WA 98841
This Garden is dedicated to more Unity in the community. This Park offers an environment for connection with Nature, a Home for animals, and Play for children. This Garden promotes Unity by providing space to gather, including a gazebo, and promotes health with a walking/biking track and an area for ride-on toys for children to have fun.
“This park is special to our family because it is where our family has had Easter Egg Hunts over many years. We are so grateful this park is near our home as we frequently come here to play ball, frisbee or take our kitties for walks. This Park is also near an Assisted Living Home which offers a great way to meet people in our Community who need and enjoy connecting and spending time together.” – Gina Marie
