An Episcopal church for all comers, a center for arts and music arts and music, a gathering place for those devoted to Cleveland and its future, Trinity Cathedral is a thriving urban community of faith. Our diverse congregation is committed to inspiring worship, thought-provoking education, dedicated service and determined advocacy. We invite newcomers to learn that when we say everyone is welcome, we really mean it.

On the evening of March 22, I attended a potluck meal with 12 Urban Farm volunteers, at the Farm’s annual spring kickoff dinner. Farm coordinator Scott Blanchard used a slideshow to share Farm photos and 2015 harvest statistics. The group discussed the upcoming 2016 growing season— veggies to plant, special events and strategies for engaging new volunteers.
Volunteers will begin cleaning up the Farm, and they will also build some new planting beds, starting on Saturday, April 2, 9 AM. Regular workdays will be Saturdays, 9 AM-12 noon, April through October. New volunteers are welcome and encouraged— even one hour of donated time is helpful— each new volunteer will receive a pair of sturdy work gloves.
The Farm will have a display table at Spring Discovery Day, April 17, to answer questions and sign up interested volunteers.
The annual Blessing of the Urban Farm will take place on Sunday, May 15, during the education hour (10:10-11:00 AM). Everyone is encouraged to come over to the Farm for the blessing and to see what’s “growing on” there. The Farm is located at E. 35th and Cedar, less than a mile from Trinity Cathedral.
