843.jpg

In order to keep up with the increasing interest in our October Field Trips we have created a new position at Trinity Gardens to oversee the education program. If you are interested please review the Job Description Here

Every year Trinity Gardens puts on October Field Trips, inviting local students to partake in a wide range of activities, learning about the pumpkin life cycle, Rainbow Food lessons, and stories under the Grandfather Pepper Tree. Each year this program has grown to host even more kids: in 2018 over 700 children participated with their parents and teachers! The program has been staffed entirely by amazing volunteers all passionate about children's garden education.

Trinity Gardens’ front field and future development site of education and exploration spaces.

In 2018 Trinity Gardens:

  • Taught over 800 local school children about planting and growing during our Spring and Fall field trips

  • Donated over 2,300 pounds of food to community members in need

  • Provided garden and cooking education to hundreds in our community

In 2019 we hope to develop garden education and exploration spaces that can be accessed by visitors as well as utilized with school groups. Inspired by gardens such as Fairview Gardens in Goleta and Life Lab in Santa Cruz, Trinity Gardens imagines a vibrant, diverse growing area planted with heritage and native plants, as well as edible landscapes and garden beds for experimenting. We plan to offer kid-friendly and ADA accessible raised beds, an accessible outdoor gathering space for groups, a sensory garden, integrate aquaponics, and include a pollinator garden.

We hope to raise $5,000 to start developing the initial infrastructure and another $5,000 for maintaining the space annually.

Thank you for any amount you are able to give!
