GLH Worldwide Partners: Iran
- Tehran Peace Museum –October 9, 2013
The staff of the Tehran Peace Museum had worried about the health of Ginkgo saplings, so following advice of their gardeners and a Gingko specialist, on Oct. 9 they planted four small Ginkgo saplings near the southern wall of the museum, close to the gardening center and the large Ginkgo tree which has been living in the city park since decades. They are hoping the saplings will thus survive the cold and dry autumn/winter climate of Tehran and flourish in their new site.

The five Ginkgo saplings are growing, however there are concerns that they are not well-adjusted to their new environment. The Peace Museum is looking for more suitable sites.
