Tour and Harvest Food at Trinity Gardens

Let's harvest food for the needy in our community with Judy Sims, pioneer garden educator and committee chair of Trinity Gardens. Judy will give us a tour of several acres growing areas, located on Trinity Lutheran Church property at the north end of La Cumbre Road, SB.  She'll answer your questions about their small scale food production. Our group will also experience harvesting, washing, weighing and bagging fresh produce for distribution to the SB Organic Soup Kitchen and a local women's shelter.
Trinity Gardens was established March 2011 as an outreach program developed by Trinity Lutheran Church and the community.  Features of the garden include 200 sq. ft. rented plots, communal growing rows for donation to programs that serve the needy, a food forest, and two field areas.  One "multi-use" large field is currently being developed as a Three Sisters pumpkin patch (corn, beans, squash); the other features recently developed gopher-proofed, long lasagna-style "hugelkulture" raised bed mounds and a greenhouse, currently under construction.  The garden hosts special events and classes, including "farm to table" seasonal cooking classes, garden education sessions, kids programs, plant sales, festivals and other special events.  Visitors are welcome any Saturday., Sunday, or Tuesday morning, 10-12:00, when garden manager Keith is on site, or by arrangement with garden chair Judy Sims, [masked], [masked].  Volunteer gardeners are welcome and needed!

    This is the most beautiful veggie garden I have ever seen!! And so incredibly prolific!! Linda and Judy even cooked persimmon bread, zucchini bread, frittata, pickles and kale chips. Thank you for a delightfully enlightening morning at Trinity Farms.

    WOW! What an amazing community based garden. Members of the SB Food and Farm Adventures experienced the opportunity of harvesting, planting, tasting and preparing beds. Judy and Keith were very generous with their time and experiences. Thank You to all.

    Loved the hands-on gardening, the snacks, vegetables and cooking tips from the generous people (Alejandro, Judy, Keith, Lisa and Linda). Eric, thanks for bringing your darling, hard-working children.

    Quite a feat for a dedicated service group that has become an asset to the community. The tour was informative, and I enjoyed the "hands on", haven't had many chances to pick vegetables in past few years. Thanks, Gerri, for organizing.

    Looking forward to it :) I'll likely have my 3-yr old son with me, so we may not stay the whole time, but he's great at harvesting veggies!

    Aileen, it's also a church day at Trinity Lutheran for me--and I'm going to the 10:30 service (rather than the 9:00) on Sunday Aug. 11th. Please come visit on a Tuesday morning, or by arrangement with me, if you'd like a personal tour.
