Help restore the Monastery greenhouse and expand our food donation program.
For 100 years, the Franciscan Monastery’s historic Lord & Burnham greenhouse has nurtured flowers, plus vegetables and herbs to feed the friars and community in need.
The greenhouse is in desperate need of restoration. Windows are broken and missing. Walls are leaking and crumbling. We’re seeking $180,000 for phase one of the restoration.
Please help. Preserve history and expand the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild’s food donation program, giving low-income children and adults in our nation’s capital healthy, locally-sourced food.
