Trinity Cathedral/Charlie Comella Urban Farm
Trinity’s commitment to creation care and concern for food insecurity, our love of our local neighborhoods and our enjoyment of simply gardening together all come together every Saturday at the Urban Farm. Founded in 2006, Trinity’s Urban Farm grows fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs for use in local hunger programs. On average, the farm harvests 2,500–3,500 pounds of food each year and has donated almost 20 tons of food since the farm’s inception. That has included collard greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, kale, blackberries, peaches, spinach, green beans, eggplant, basil, oregano, chives and much more.
Trinity’s Urban Farm is an innovative urban garden dedicated to sustainable practices, local art, and faithful stewardship of God’s creation. Currently, our harvest goes directly to The Friendly Inn Settlement's free food pantry program in our neighborhood, making this a true farm-to-table initiative.
Volunteers gather Saturday mornings from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. at the farm, located at the corner of E. 35th St. and Cedar Ave., less than one mile from the cathedral. Tasks include planting, watering, nurturing, harvesting, mowing, trimming, weeding, raking and more. If you have questions, please contact Scott Blanchard.
This ministry is supported by Trinity’s Neighborhood Partnership Mission Team.
