Restore the Greenhouse!

Our Lord and Burnham greenhouse is over 100 years old and needs significant repair to replace the windows and fix leaking and crumbling walls.

Help expand our food donation program and preserve history. The cost for the next phase of restoration is $180,400.

A restored greenhouse will help the volunteer Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild expand our food donation program, providing low-income children and adults in our nation’s capital healthy, locally-sourced food.

YES! I want to help restore the greenhouse!
