Call to Action

This is a resource for upcoming events at Trinity and in our community at large. If you have an announcement you’d like to include, please contact the communications staff and let us know.

Horticultural Therapy Program and Community Garden
Each session includes a bilingual (English/Spanish) lesson on horticulture or art, and a family workday in the garden. A registered Horticultural Therapist will work with children individually or in small groups while families tend the garden. The entire family can participate and we welcome all children, with or without disabilities. Each family will be asked to take turns watering and maintaining the garden, and will receive part of the harvest of vegetables. This is a pilot program with the possibility of continuation based on interest. For more information and to register, please contact Gloria Haley at ghaleyart@yahoo.com or 336-814-7080, or Megan Gregory at gregormm@forsyth.cc or 336-705-8823.
