Hildegard of Bingen’s Buds and Blooms

Spring is here—inspiring us to get into our gardens, yards, and patios to plant, create, and cultivate a blooming and bountiful environment for all to enjoy!

St. Paul’s Monastery wants to help you with your spring planting and gardening needs. Join us for a fundraiser co-hosted with Gerten’s Garden Center. We are selling all the beautiful spring plants and flowers that Gerten’s has to offer. There are many options; check them out on the Gerten's Fundraising page (enter store ID code 251 for St. Paul’s Monastery

This spring sale and fundraiser is inspired by Hildegard of Bingen, who loved nature. She is beloved for writing:

“Glance at the sun. See the moon and the stars. Gaze at the beauty of earth’s greenings. Now, think. What delight God gives to humankind with all these things. All nature is at the disposal of humankind. We are to work with it. For without we cannot survive.”

St. Paul’s Monastery hopes you love to protect and nurture God’s green spaces as well. This plant and garden sale will help you get a good start on your spring planting. In addition, your purchase today will help us get a jump on our spring fundraising as 30% of the proceeds of plant and 15% of any gift card sold will directly benefit St. Paul’s Monastery.

We know you will enjoy these great planting ideas from Gerten’s Garden Center. Shop now and pick-up at St. Paul’s Monastery in May.
