The Holy Trinity Parish Garden, a joint effort by the Human Concerns and School Ministries, was planted early in the morning of June 13 with the help of more than 18 school ministry children.

The garden built by parish volunteers and will be tended by the School Ministry children, who will follow a garden curriculum organized by teachers and parent volunteers. The children will learn not only about caring for the environment, gardening and nutrition, but will be involved in helping others through their labor.

The produce will be offered to The Upper Room in Placerville as an outreach of the Human Concerns ministry.

Monday, the children were joined by Deacon Jim Hopp, chair of the Human Concerns Ministry; Trisha Uhrhammer, principal of the School Ministry; parishioners and Master Gardeners Ramon Lopez and Paula Agostini, and Jan Wilcox, community outreach specialist for Mercy Hospital in Folsom, who generously supplied the many vegetables and herbs. Parent volunteer Joann Bonini supplied doughnuts for all and by 9 a.m. six raised beds were full of vegetables, herbs and flowers.
