Assumption Abbey continues to put a major effort into gardening. The
garden exists to serve the needs of our kitchen, and many of our vegetables
(from fresh asparagus in the spring to pumpkins in the fall), and all of our
potatos are grown right here.
“ If it can be done, the monastery should be so establishedthat all the necessary things, such as water, mill, garden,and various workshops, may be within the enclosure…” (Rule of St. Benedict: Ch. 66)
