Biography

"The legacy of Mahatma Gandhi is complex as it incorporates philosophy and actions regarding equality, independence, appreciation for the environment, peace, and building community. The preservation of his legacy has been captured perfectly in the creation and ongoing development of Burton Street Peace Garden. As Gandhi sought to improve communities throughout India, the Peace Garden has been an improvement to Asheville and the Burton Street neighborhood. In welcoming all visitors, it offers a diverse amount of experiences including peaceful reflection upon its art, meditation in a green space, learning from an outdoor classroom, vegetable gardening, and meeting, interacting, and collaborating with people of all ages and races."
