DID YOU KNOW PEACE GARDENS REDUCE CRIME AND PROMOTE "ACTS OF NEIGHBORING"?

While we at Tactical Ops have seen, first hand, the benefits of peace gardens in communities; research by Frances E (Ming) Kuo concludes "patterns of aggression and crime at Ida B. Wells and Robert Taylor Homes tell us that greener environments reduce aggressive behavior. When we examine the flip side of aggression and crime to look at positive social behavior—acts of neighboring, caring, and friendliness, we find that vegetation is associated with better social behavior across the board. More green translates to less aggression, less transgression, more socializing, and more acts of caring."

Peace Garden stems from a gardening concept created by Tactical Ops founder Dr. Twumasi in September, 2005, but had its beginnings in the Netherlands and was matured in Ghana, West Africa. The Peace Garden concept started with gardening methods taught to Dr. Twumasi and her brother by their Dutch mother, who helped them raise a variety of fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs and flowers in harsh climatic conditions. Additional education and training in Dr. Twumasi’s teenage years added knowledge of soil and bed selection, fertilization, pest control, complementary plantings and more.

Through research conducted at Johns Hopkins University in the 1980’s, Dr. Twumasi learned that there is a correlation between vegetation and crime decrease. She and her staff have since taken this Peace Garden design to support the healing process. Over the decades, this healing process has been modified and adapted for individuals, couples, families and corporations. It is utilized around the world.

The garden is sustainable with little to no care. The health of the garden is reflected by welcome visitors such as deer, rabbits, opossum, hummingbirds, lizards, butterflies, toads and such. The physical concepts of the Peace Garden design can include:
  • Water harvesting and retention
  • Beds, both raised and sunken
  • Irrigation system
  • Composter units
  • Sustainable food crops and herbs
  • Decorative flowers and plants
  • Medicinal herbs
  • Organic fertilization
  • Natural pest control
The Peace Garden design has the flexibility to be modified for use in all climatic conditions. The Peace Garden exudes not only sustenance, but it also imparts hope. The garden can be used to fashion peace in areas of conflict. Both the depth of intervention and the resolutions resulting from tending a peace garden are invaluable.
