THE INTERNATIONAL PEACE GARDEN
The International Peace Garden was founded in 1932 on the premise of peace, cooperation and friendship. We are a year-round destination that remains dedicated to our founding principles while serving as a resource for education, conservation, and entertainment for local, regional, national and international visitors.
The International Peace Garden is a non-profit botanical garden dedicated to the mission of celebrating peace and fostering a more peaceful world. The Peace Garden operates on a combination of public and private funding. Public funding is provided by both the state of North Dakota and the Manitoba provincial government.
Both the Canadian and United States federal governments have provided funds throughout history, but not on a yearly basis. In addition to a full-time administration and horticulture staff, the Peace Garden is governed by a volunteer board of directors.
