website at http://www.allhallowsguild.org/flower-mart The grounds surrounding Washington National Cathedral were originally designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. as a “haven of peace and refreshment”—an oasis within the city. In 1919, Mr. Olmsted spoke eloquently about the “great charm of approaching the Cathedral through and up a wooded hillside, leaving the city far behind and below. Helping one to forget the hurly-burly and busy-ness of a work-a-day world must be taken advantage of to the fullest extent."
All Hallows Guild is the volunteer-led organization that raises funds for the care and maintenance of the Cathedral grounds, and Flower Mart is its primary fundraiser.
