Pastoral Institute

The dedication of the sixth Garden for Peace on March 13, 1999, at the Pastoral Institute in Nairobi, Kenya, marked the organization’s first garden in Africa, with the help of Dr. James H. Costen. The five-acre site harbors a variety of trees and is part of an extensive habitat adjacent to the campus.

As students from the Institute joined leaders from Nairobi University and its Agricultural College, as well as Atlanta and Kenya-based clergy, Dr. Dorsey celebrated their vision for the land by acknowledging their participation in a peaceful world by dedicating a Garden for Peace, thus symbolizing the linking of their garden to others around the world.

The ties that bind the Pastoral Institute and Atlanta are longstanding, as several students from Kenya and the United States participate in exchange programs at seminaries and hospitals in both countries.
