One of the first tasks for the new monks founding our monastery was the planting of a garden and vineyard. We are one of the few monasteries that continue that tradition. We have Br. Joseph who oversees our vineyard, and lots of monks can be found in the garden. Brothers Joseph, Eric and Adrian, along with Fathers Richard, Mark, Bruno and Prior David all have their hand in the ground. We plant peppers, squash, beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, okra, and peas. Here are just a few pictures. Click on any to magnify the view.
