The bulb planting at the home on Peterhouse Avenue is the first of a number of small community service projects that the Gorleston Baha'i group are completing in the local community in the forthcoming year in memory of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha'u'llah.
He was the founder of the Baha'i Fai, which is the world's youngest religion and was formed in 1863.
Born in Iran in 1817, Baha'u'llah taught the principles of unity and world peace. There are 7 million Baha'is, who believe people should work together for the common benefit of all.
