Join members of the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild for an Open House on Saturday, April 30, 2016, 10 a.m.-12 noon.,
Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land
1400 Quincy St. NE, Washington, DC
(meet at the greenhouse behind the gift shop)
Experienced and new gardeners are welcome. Tour the greenhouse, the vegetable, herb and cut-flower gardens, plus our honey bee apiaries. Ask questions about gardening and beekeeping and learn how you can volunteer.
The mission of the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild is to preserve and protect the gardens of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America. The FMGG volunteers also cultivate vegetables and herbs – last year, over 6,000 pounds were donated to families in need in the District of Columbia – maintain beehives, offer workshops, lead garden tours and organize special events. Questions? Contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking: park in front and walk past the gift shop, or use the service driveway north of the monastery to access the small back lot.
