Garden Projects

All Hallows Guild Garden Committee members work with the Cathedral’s horticulture staff to identify areas of the gardens and grounds that are in need of improvement or restoration. In recent years, fundraising activities, membership dues, and memorial gifts have enabled the Guild to invest more than 6 million dollars to improve and maintain the Cathedral gardens and grounds.

On-going Programs

The Covid19 pandemic has caused the cancellation of most of our programs - which has significantly reduced our revenue during 2020. If you are able, a donation or membership in All Hallows Guild will provide us with resources to continue with our garden projects and on-going maintenance.
