The Pollinator Garden of Interfaith Peace at the Buddhist Vihara Temple

If you're searching for a place where eco-consciousness meets interfaith harmony, look no further than the Pollinator Garden at the Buddhist Vihara Temple in Princeton. This serene sanctuary not only supports the environment but also fosters a sense of togetherness among different faiths, all while giving back to the local community and beyond.

PEACE GARDEN: The Pollinator Garden is part of a larger vision—the New Jersey Peace Garden, initiated in 2017 by the Somerset County Cultural Diversity Coalition in collaboration with Rotary District 7510, interfaith community leaders, and various community organizations. This initiative was inspired by Rotary's 2013 theme, "Peace Through Service."

Nestled within the tranquil surroundings of the Buddhist Vihara Temple, the Pollinator Garden is a testament to the power of unity and the beauty of nature. Here are a few compelling reasons why you should make a visit:

Promoting Interfaith Peace: The garden stands as a symbol of interfaith peace and cooperation. It's a place where people from various religious backgrounds can come together, meditate, and celebrate their unique paths of worship while appreciating the shared values of love, harmony, and respect.

Supporting the Environment: This garden is more than just a pretty sight; it's a thriving ecosystem. Focused on native plants that attract pollinators, it actively contributes to the preservation of local flora and fauna. By visiting, you become part of a larger mission to protect our planet's biodiversity.

Global Impact: The Pollinator Garden's mission extends far beyond its tranquil borders. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of organizations like Rotary International, Rotaract Club of NJ Whitehouse, Friends of Nepal NJ, and more, the garden hosts fundraisers and events that support local, regional, and international communities in need. Every donation is tax-deductible, making your support even more impactful.

Get Involved: The best part is that you can be an active participant in this noble cause. Feel free reach out to the Rotary Club of Whitehouse NJ to learn more about volunteering onsite. They are more than willing to answer your questions and welcome your feedback. Your efforts can make a big difference.
