Order Now! Our Spring Plant & Herb Sale is Back!

The Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild’s annual Spring Plant & Herb Sale is back! Things are a little different this year due to pandemic precautions, with pre-paid, online sales and curbside pickup only, but for the first time, everything this year is Monastery-grown!


Curbside pickup for pre-paid orders is Friday, April 23, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, April 24, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. You will select the date and time at checkout.

Unfortunately, there will be no day-of/on-site sales this year. All orders must be made online.


The Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild is a volunteer organization. We are dedicated to preservation programs for the historic Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land‘s gardens and 105-year-old cast iron greenhouse. Your purchase of monastery-grown produce and honey will go right back into supporting these volunteer programs and will help us grow more fresh vegetables for area food banks and pantries.

You will be able to select a pick-up time (but not change it due to social distancing). Pick up by car or walk-up is fine. Please follow the one-way signs to help us.

Consider a Donation

If you are not able to be part of the Plant & Herb Sale this year, but would like to support our volunteer program, we would be very grateful! Our goal is to harvest and donate more than seven tons of fresh vegetables from our garden and greenhouse in 2021. Donations will be put to good use and are tax deductible. Just click the garden sale link!

Easter Lily Dedications

We are grateful to those who have dedicated virtual Easter lilies to loved ones. Each person will be remembered in the prayers of the Friars throughout Holy Week and Easter.

We hope next year to be back together, in person, at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America.

Our Annual Easter Lily Sale is Here!

Our Easter Lily Sale is Back!

We have SOLD OUT of lilies for curbside pickup (Saturday, March 27 if you placed and paid for an order online). You can still make a donation in honor or memory of loved ones; their names will be placed on a dedication page on this website starting March 28 and they will be remembered in the friars’ prayers.

We are pleased to be able to offer Easter lilies for curbside pickup this year. In addition to picking up lilies for your own home or friends, you can donate a virtual Easter lily in honor or in memory of your loved ones. We will post their names on an online tribute on this website starting Palm Sunday, plus they will be remembered in the friars’ prayers at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America at Easter.

Curbside Pickup

We have sold out! If you ordered and paid online, curbside pickup for lilies is Saturday, March 27, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., at the parking lot at 14th and Quincy Streets, NE, Washington, DC 20017. The lot is across the street from the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America and St. Francis Hall.

You also can donate a “virtual” lily for $8/name; names will be posted on a dedication page here starting on Palm Sunday.

While we are happy to be able to offer Easter lilies after a year off, we unfortunately will not have palm crosses this year.

Please note that we accepted orders only via our website this year. Thank you for your support.
