Our Sister gardeners love the earth and tend it well after the example of Francis and Clare
It is our Franciscan Tradition to love all of creation after our patrons Saints Francis and Clare.
Saint Francis of Assisi rejoiced in all
the works of the Lord's Hands.
In beautiful things he intuited Beauty itself.
Francis savored in each and every creature
----the goodness given them by God. (St. Bonaventure's Major Work of St. Francis)
Clare considered herself the Little Plant of Francis
and followed his love for creation.
