Community Peace Garden

Baltimore Community Mediation Program provides free mediation services, teaches conflict resolution skills, mobilizes volunteer community mediators and educates the public. By making mediation and other nonviolent conflict resolution strategies more accessible in Baltimore City, the Community Mediation Program reduces violence and interpersonal conflict and animosity while improving communication all across Baltimore City. This neighborhood desperately needed a green space that would support and reaffirm the residents’ dedication to a peaceful existence. The beautiful and environmentally-friendly designed Peace Garden has made this need a reality. The Peace Garden is used as the centerpiece for mediation sessions as well as community outreach projects. It is a place for staff to take a breath and regroup as well as for Waverly neighbors, community supporters, community groups and others to enjoy.

    About Us

    We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
