Bristol’s Peace Garden
on the Green
The garden is a community project made possible by a commitment
to Peace and the generosity of the Elementary school, churches,
businesses, residents of Bristol and the neighboring towns.
The community regularly maintains the Peace Garden,
and would like to invite people to get involved.
We are grateful to live in a community where peace is an
important component of our culture.

Thank you

Peace Garden History
 
During the school year 1989 - 1990 the Childrens Art Exchange Committee conceived the idea
of creating a garden dedicated to world peace in Bristol, Vermont. That year Carol Heinecken,
Gail Martin, landscape architect David Raphael, along with a dozen K through 6 students worked to
construct and seed the peace garden. Together the group designed a pie shaped plan with seven
wedges, each representing one of the earth's continents. In the fall of 1990, Ted Lylis oversaw
the construction project and, along with other volunteers, turned soil, built raised bed walls, laid
brick walks and in the spring of 1991 officially opened the peace garden.
