From an email:

“Buy monastery-grown and other local herbs and vegetables, take a tour of the historic Franciscan Monastery gardens and enjoy food and craft vendors:

Saturday, April 23 (9 a.m.-6 p.m.) and Sunday, April 24 (8 a.m.-3 p.m.)
Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land
1400 Quincy St. NE, Washington, DC 20017

Sponsored by the Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild and held in the monastery’s century-old gardens, the sale features herbs, vegetables, flowers, roses, azaleas, plants and shrubs, many of them grown in the monastery’s greenhouse. Free garden tours at 11 a.m. and noon daily.

The event benefits the preservation and care of the gardens, which were designed by Franciscan friars over 100 years ago, as well as newer initiatives of the volunteer Garden Guild, including beekeeping and vegetable gardening that produced over 6,000 pounds of produce for DC non-profits serving the city’s hungry last year.”
