About Tree Project:
The trees that still live from the time of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima are called, Hibaku trees (A-bombed trees).
In 2006, I was given second or third generation seeds and seedlings of the tree that survived the atomic bombing by Tree Dr. Riki Horigichi in Hiroshima. I brought these seeds and seedlings to the US to give them to people who are interested in planting them and growing them.
As I have started this project, I have come to realize that they are not about reminding people about the atomic bombing but sharing the preciousness of life.
I would not claim the price of this plant since my tree project is a gift. However, I would like to ask for people who wish to receive this plant to come up with the price of donation for Yuko. I ask for the compassionate and kindest generosity from the bottom of my heart.
Then Sendan was bought by AVENA GALLAGHER & BABAK RADBOY
