Mission: The Japanese Gardening Organization (JGO) is a multi-national group organized to accomplish the overall and common goal of spreading the benefits of Japanese gardening for individuals, groups, communities, and society. Currently, this is addressed by the maintenance and development of educational resources for “japanesegardening.org” in fostering the knowledge, appreciation and application of Japanese gardening.
Vision: Continue the advancement of the knowledge, appreciation, and application of Japanese gardening, with roots in international expertise and resources.
Values: We will strive to maintain the highest level of accurate and dependable information and resources for Japanese gardening and closely associated arts. This is the culture and personality of the Japanese Gardening Organization.
In addition to these resources, JGO will use the Japanese Gardening Forum to assist and guide forum participants toward authentic and appropriate decisions and methods. All operations and priorities will follow these values.
