The Teaching Garden at the Benedictine Monastery
9535 Linton Hall Road, Bristow, VA 20136
The Teaching Garden, located at the Benedictine Monastery/Linton Hall School grounds at 9535 Linton Hall Rd. Brisow, VA, and is managed and maintained by VCE Prince William Master Gardener Volunteers.
While this garden began as a garden in which to grow fresh produce for the Plant a Row for the Hungry project and provide fresh produce for needy families, today the Teaching Garden is used to demonstrate low maintenance gardening techniques that homeowners can implement in their own landscape and for hands on volunteer training. The guiding principles are to use drought tolerant, deer resistant, native plantings. Master Gardeners are at the garden every Tuesday morning and Thursday evening and on many Saturdays March through October. If you'd like to schedule a visit or a tour, please contact us. We also offer practical classes at "Saturday in the Garden” programs every montn, April - October. For our latest schedule of these classes, please visit http://www.pwcgov.org/government/dept/vce/Pages/Saturday-in-the-Garden.aspx
