DHS/OSU Trinity Community Garden
The DHS/OSU Trinity Community Garden Project started out as a vision which has become a reality. This is a garden that is located on the property of the Department of Human Services which is located in a community that could be considered a food dessert. The mission of the Department of Human Services is to help individuals and families that are in need and that's exactly the goal of the community garden. Volunteers from DHS, OSU Horticulture Department, Trinity Episcopal Church and the Department of Agriculture have joined together and created an awsome project. The goal for our garden is; 1) to be a food source for individuals and families that may not have the food, income or benefits that they may need to carry them over until the next paycheck, 2) to teach our children, adults, volunteers and community residents how to plant the seed, maintain the soil and harvest the vegetables 3) Provide health and nutrition classes that will be offered to everyone in the community, to teach them the importance of growing their own vegetables, cooking their own meals, eating healthy and talking care of themselves and their families and 4) to bring the community together to establish healthy long-lasting relationships with one another.
KGI is a nonprofit community of over 30,000 people who are growing some of our own food and helping others to do the same.
