Hildegarden

The Hildegarden at St. Francis of the Woods is a space for education, collaboration, and reciprocity. Lovingly named after St. Hildegard of Bingen, a medieval mystic who wrote about theology, herbalism, and music, the garden is home to a variety of perennial herbs, berries, and native plants, as well as seasonal vegetables. We are committed to using regenerative gardening practices that reflect the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi, who believed that traces of the Divine were found in the world around us. He loved and respected nature as an image of Christ. In his Canticle of the Sun, he engages fire and water, moon and stars, in the worship of the Creator. Of the earth he says, "Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth, who feeds us and rules us, and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs." 

At St. Francis of the Woods we believe that healthy food should be accessible to all, so we partner with local non-profit organizations, including Vision Farms and God's Food Bank in Guthrie and the Food Bank in Langston, to share our abundance of crops. You can purchase produce from St. Francis of the Woods on site at our self-serve farmstand, located in the Wash House (the building with the murals near the Community Center). We also sell our produce at Flora Bodega!
