“Out of gardens grow fleeting flowers but lasting friendships.”
– Beverly Rose Hopper
The Trinidad Garden Tour was a wonderful day spent in the company of neighbors from here in Trinidad and from Carver-Langston, Atlas District and Brookland. Despite the rain and chilly weather about 35 people joined the tour today. We saw lovely flowers, garden beds, worm composting systems, bee hives, garden oasis with movie screen set ups, a library, some home renovations, and much more to spark conversation and new ideas for how to continue to transform our yards and build our community. This is the 7th or 8th garden tour and we are blessed to live in a vibrant community where long time and new residents can come together and celebrate our neighborhood and each other.
A special thank you to Laura Casperson for taking on much of the work to organize the day. Thank you to our many gracious and generous hosts including Tony, Chris, Elise, Julie, Liz, Aaron, Tiffany, Niraj, Cultivate the City and W.S. Jenks, Andy, Greg, Timothy, Rodolfo, and Rosetta.
A few photos from the garden tour are below. Anyone that wishes to share photos can either post them to the Trinidad Neighborhood Association Facebook page or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do another blog post with photos later in the week if we receive them to share.
Thank you again everyone and we hope that community networks and connections made or strengthened during the garden tour will continue to grow! See you again next year on the tour.
