      • 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.
