Harrisburg Celebrates the Peace Garden

Following over two decades of work between Harrisburg-Hershey chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) and the city of Harrisburg, a Peace Garden has been constructed.  It is right by the Susquehanna River. The PSR has been in charge of design and plantation of the Garden while the city is responsible for routine maintenance.  Non-routine maintenance is a combined effort.

I really like it.  It’s large, comfortable and extraordinarily peaceful even though apparently the whole community is using it.  Given the fact that so much of my day is taken up by doing city-like things (work, travel, etc.), I really appreciate all that the PSR has done.  It is a voluntary organization that has apparently put tens of thousands of dollars into this project and I for one, applaud its efforts.
