Weed out Hate

Daimyo CDFor the past five years, the Weed Out Hate Initiative has been encouraging peace loving souls to relate weeding the garden with root out bully, racism, and even the worst destructive human instincts.  It is a great method for teachers to engage their students in outdoor social inclusion, gardening, games…asking people of all racial and religious stripe, to root out weeds of hatred together, and plant sunflower seeds of peace in their place.

With International Peace Week coming up next week, we will do our best to expedite our Sunflower Peace Seeds, shirts, or Weed Out Hate music CDs to your event from our weedouthate.org shop. Please email Marc at marc@weedouthate.org to learn more!
