International Peace Garden Scholarship

The Federated Women’s Institutes of Canada in partnership with the International Peace Garden Foundation have been pleased to support a learning and leadership initiative at the International Peace Garden.  Young women who participated in the program developed their leadership skills while building a foundational knowledge of environmental management and horticulture education in the twenty-first century.

Participants received full travel, room, and board support while working with International Peace Garden staff and volunteers.
