Activities in Hiroshima5-44 Motomachi, Naka-ku, Hiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture 730-0011
On December 10th - international Human Rights Day - GLH team and partners gathered under the Kurogane holly tree at Hiroshima Castle, for one of our important seed-picking events. We then headed to pick seeds of the Hackberry and Permission trees at historic Atago Pond. It was wonderful to gather in person again for the first time after COVID-19 -- a peaceful moment for all as always, and we felt the resilience of the trees.
The following week our core team — our coordinator Nassrine Azimi, Master Gardener Chikara Horiguchi, Haruka Yasuda, and Benjamin Echikson from GLH team — went for seed picking at the Camphor tree by the Motomachi Apartments. Thanks to the magical power of the A-bombed trees, the rain and snow stopped before the seed-picking day, and we were able to collect a lot of seeds single-mindedly!
