A private garden dedicated to the community good, established 2016
"A SPGANA (StoryTrail Peace Gardens Across North America) offers a space to honor, cultivate, and ally with transformational stories of everyday peace heroes and the ideals that guide them." Jerry Leggett, founder
Through story art, we lift up everyday Peace Heroes whose stories are often invisible. The peace hero ideals they embody serve as a catalyst for empowering individuals and communities to reduce violence, teach peace, and promote justice.
Mission: Giving voice to untold stories of peace
We envision a world where nonviolence is a way of life and all people can better thrive.
For three decades, singer-songwriter Jerry Leggett has been curating and sharing stories about Peace Heroes living throughout the world. Join Jerry for a virtual Storywalk in the Tubac Storytrail Garden. The 45-minute experience includes a tour of story-art features installed in the Garden— along with an introduction to local, national and international Peace Heroes who inspire realistic hope for a more harmonious and just world.
Schedule a Zoom Storywalk in our private Rock Garden filled with Story Art in Tubac. Traverse the labyrinth virtually — take a leisurely stroll on the 3/4 acre Heart Trail. You’ll be inspired by the lives of more than 100 Peace Heroes who have been selected by people across the U.S. Their stories offer positive lessons for nurturing Borderland communities where all can better thrive!
