Franciscan Monastery (Saturdays)

  • Trinity students have the opportunity to work in an organic garden right here in the middle of the city. If you feel close to our Mother Earth and find peace being in the outdoors, growing food for poor people in the District, this is the place for you on Saturdays. It’s so easy to go on Saturday mornings: it’s just a short walk from the Brookland metro station! All food grown in the garden is donated to the food banks in the District of Columbia.
  • This trip resumes in the Fall semester 2017. Meet our student facilitator Komi Koffi at the Trinity shuttle on Saturday morning, 9:15 a.m. We work from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. Please note the dress code, below! Make your reservation to go with Koffi beforehand!
  • To find our more about the organic garden, please contact Lou Maroulis , the Master Gardener.
