Our neighbors at the The Franciscan Monastery will be having an open house event this Saturday April 30th from 10:00 -12:00. The open house is hosted by the Monastery’s Garden Guild, whose mission it is to preserve and promote the gardens at the Franciscan Monastery. From the Garden Guild website:

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 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 atgardenguild@gmail.com.

Meet up with the group  at the greenhouse behind the Monastery. The Monastery is located at 1400 Quincy Street NE. For more information check out the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guildwebsite, Facebook page or give them a call at (703) 967-0958.
