Interested in volunteering?  We’d love to have your help..

 In the Gardens:

Every month on the second Saturday, from April -November, there is a volunteer day.  Please  bring a sack lunch and we’ll provide work, a dessert, and beverage. Come at 9:00 am and stay until 4:00 pm–or as long as you can, and work in the flower beds, the vegetable garden, fruit orchards, and the lavender plot.  

You can let us know if you’re coming, and ask any questions you might have, by sending us a message through the “ Contact Us” page.  Come for fun and fellowship, working the soil, and worship with the Sisters.
