Welcoming the Community

The community garden at Trinfo.Café, located at 1300 Broad Street, offers free plots to registered gardeners, a small park with picnic tables, and a “Read and Seed” Little Free Library that is open to the public. Carlos Espinosa ’96, director of Trinity’s Office of Community Relations and Trinfo.Café, describes the community garden as a “common ground” for everyone in the neighborhood, including Hartford residents, community organizations, and Trinity’s faculty, staff, and students. The garden underwent renovations and repairs in summer 2020, thanks to fundraising efforts led by the Simsbury Grange and Susan A. Masino, Vernon D. Roosa Professor of Applied Science at Trinity and vice president of the Simsbury Grange. Trinity professors, including Masino, use the garden as an outdoor classroom that connects academics with community engagement.
