The Importance of Native Landscapes

Understanding how important even small native landscapes and gardens are in the modern world leads to the realization that everything in the natural world is interconnected. These natural connections will be the feature of this presentation.


All Hallows Guild was founded in 1916 to provide for the care and beautification of the grounds of Washington National Cathedral. The Guild works closely with the horticultural staff to preserve this historic landscape and raises funds for renovation and renewal of the gardens.
