Portland Japanese Garden CEO Steve Bloom discusses the many facets of Japanese gardens, including how to better understand the subtleties of these gardens, from their spiritual and social purposes and origins, to their practical uses, ranging from a lovely place to visit, to serving as venues for promoting the ideals of culture, craft, wellness, mutual understanding, and the pursuit of global peace. Bloom will discuss the past, present, and future of the Portland Japanese Garden and how it has grown into one the most dynamic global platforms for sharing Japan’s greatest gifts with the world.
