Imagine a world where peace emanates from the heartland of America. Imagine you being a creator of this peace.
We create Peace through positive action that benefits communities.
Harnessing the power of volunteerism, Global Peace Initiatives promote peace through the arts, education and service.
How do we do it?
We teach service year round through our facilitation of volunteer groups
- We demonstrate principals of sustainability through effective implementation of reclaim, redevelop and reuse strategies.
We teach about agriculture through our Peaceful Grounds Initiative at the Marion County Fairgrounds.
We opened Peaceful Grounds Farm and Arts Market in the Spring 2014. By opening this market, we have created the largest accessible year-round market in Central Indiana for local food and the craft arts.
We promote the development of Peace Gardens to feed the hungry and enrich the community by providing accessible training to community leaders from agencies with food pantries, like churches, neighborhoods and community centers.
We walk the walk of peace – through our Peace Hikes
We nurture our spiritual selves – through our Reflections from Peace Hikes
We create moments that transform lives.
Our opportunities for learning and service are great. We learn by doing in a place based setting with project oriented development strategy for the individual as well as the communities in which we serve. We facilitate groups in service on a pre-scheduled appointment. Contact us in order to schedule your group.
