    Our friends at the Franciscan Monastery would love to grow with you! @jlwirth @rawillou @wardlegacy @alsopgrows Check out the details here:
    We will be propagating mint, yarrow, lavender, honey melon and pineapple sage, and starting calendula and other herbs from seed.

    Thanks!

    PS: The Garden Guild is also planting potatoes in the garden, from about noon to 2 pm.

    • Thanks Jennifer! We will be propagating herbs in the Franciscan Monastery Greenhouse from 1 to 3 pm this Saturday, March 25, 2017. The Monastery is at 14th & Quincy Streets NE, in Brookland. The Greenhouse is in the back, at the bottom of the hill. Follow signs to the gift shop and then go down the hill.

      • Hi Christina
        Do you all have regular Saturday volunteer hours? I would like to come out and help out / pick up some growing and use techniques but am booked solid this weekend. Thanks!

        • Hi Joe, Yes, our regular Saturday volunteer hours are between 10 am and 1 pm. We have an all-volunteer garden guild that tends the vegetable and herb gardens behind the monastery. Someone is usually working in the Monastery garden then, and we can always use help. We are simultaneously preparing to plant the garden and getting ready for the annual plant sale. I’m there often, but not every Saturday. -Christina
