The Teaching Garden at the Benedictine Monastery
9535 Linton Hall Road, Bristow VA 20136

 

The Teaching Garden is project of the Master Gardener Volunteers. It began as a garden to grow fresh produce for the Plant a Row for the Hungry project and a place where  Master Gardeners could teach homeowners how to grow vegetables. The Teaching Garden displays low maintenance gardening techniques that homeowners can implement in their own gardens. It also features plant material that grows well locally. 

Master Gardeners are at the Teaching Garden every Tuesday evening and on some weekends from March through September. If you'd like to schedule a visit with a Master Gardener, please email master_gardener@pwcgov.org. We also offer short classes each month, “Saturday in the Garden,” during the growing season. Classes provide information on a wide variety of topics such as turf maintenance, vegetables, ornamentals, pests and diseases.  A special class for children is also included.  View the Teaching Garden Brochure which contains a map of the teaching garden bed layout. View the upcoming events at the Garden here as well as other horticulture classes offered by the Master Gardeners
