Sunny Day Initiative1402 Andrew Dr, Medord, Oregon 97501
In early November, we were delighted to welcome to Hiroshima our partners from Oregon, working to promote the impactful Sunny Day Initiative (founded by Hideko Tamura-Snider). Jim Gersbach from the Oregon Department of Forestry, Mike Oxendine from Oregon Community Trees, and filmmaker David Hedberg. The purpose of the visit was for our partners to see some of the mother survivor trees and to meet master gardener Horiguchi-san and GLH and Hiroshima botanic garden teams. David could also give first public viewings at the Peace Memorial Museum and Hiroshima University of his upcoming documentary, “The Seeds of Peace”, about Hideko and the initiative of planting hibakujumoku tree seeds in Oregon.
