Life Directions is hosting the 6th Annual Seeds of Peace conference and celebration on Thursday, July 29, at Farragut High School, 2345 South Christiana Avenue, 12 Noon-4:30 PM. The public is invited to attend and participate. Admission is free.
Palestinian and Israeli youth will meet Life Directions students from Marshall, Farragut, and Community Links High Schools and exchange life experiences. Last year’s Seeds of Peace dedicated the Garden of Forgiveness adjacent to First Church of the Brethren, on the site of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Chicago office.
This year, a new Community Garden & Playground at Amor de Dios United Methodist Church is being dedicated at 2356 South Sawyer, adjacent to Farragut High School. It is hoped this will become a venue for peaceful conflict resolution and a catalyst for eliminating violence from the schools and communities.
