Trinity’s garden is a community garden. The produce grown in our garden is intended to be shared with our community, and if enough produce is available, with food pantries. Our garden engages residents of Centennial Neighborhood. Everyone is welcome to pick produce, pull a weed, and help tend our garden.
Our garden is part of a local community garden network, Grow Local. Grow Local's vision is to build, nourish, and nurture community through establishing and growing urban gardens. Through Grow Local, each garden is assigned a Master Gardener and provided resources and support.
Did you know that in North Central Indiana, 1 in 8 people experience hunger? There are no grocery stores in downtown Lafayette. To reach a grocery store, one must drive or take public transportation out of downtown. Our Trinity garden fills a gap in making fresh, healthy produce readily available to downtown residents.
Emily Spilker is Trinity's volunteer garden coordinator. Emily loves serving the local community and is always eager to welcome new folks to our garden team.
