CLIMATE ACTION: Gardening at Japanese Friendship Garden

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: City of San Jose Parks, Recreation, and Neighborhood Services



Project Overview

California Climate Action Corps - Community Climate Action Day, a climate volunteer event and celebration hosted in collaboration with California Volunteers, HandsOn Bay Area, the City of San Jose, Veggielution, and other San Jose community organizations! As part of California Climate Action Week, hundreds of volunteers will support projects throughout the city focused on urban greening, organic waste and edible food recovery, and wildfire resiliency.

Volunteers will be weeding, pruning the Ivy wall, and cleaning up the pond

Japanese Friendship Garden

This beautiful and tranquil garden is an expanse of peace in the middle of the city. The Japanese Friendship Garden (JFG) is a living symbol of the "Sister City" relationship between Okayama, Japan and San Jose. It serves as a popular setting for the perfect place for weddings and celebrations, but it best serves San Jose residents as a place to sit and reflect on the beauty and power of nature. Egrets can be seen occasionally at the koi ponds and the tea house and bridges make this a perfect setting for deep breathing.

About California Climate Action Corps

In California, climate change is a threat to systems and people across the state. The impacts to our environment and health are worsening as we experience longer and more frequent droughts, devastating wildfires, and more. Each of us has a role to play. You can take meaningful action today to help communities across our state..

In 2020, as a part of California's comprehensive strategy to address the climate crisis, California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, created the country's first state-level climate service corps. The service corps was established to empower all Californians to take meaningful action to safeguard the climate.
