Creation Care at Trinity - Growing Hope Garden
'The LORD God put the man in the garden of Eden to care for it and work it'
Trinity's Creation Care 'Growing Hope' garden was established in April 2021. It has several aims:
- To educate Trinity's students on climate change through the process of growing vegetables organically and learning how climate change critically affects poorer nations.
- Teach 'Farming God's Way' principles in planting.
- Provide student leadership opportunities through the roles of Creation Care Assistants.
- The Growing Hope Garden forms part of Trinity's Service Programme and Co-curricular programme.
- Mental well-being and pastoral care - the Growing Hope Garden provides a place for students to enjoy the healing benefits of being outdoors, sowing sunflowers, and being given an opportunity to be listened to and offered prayer.
We are very thankful to Janet Phythian, a missionary in Mozambique who runs the 'Africa Naturally' farm in Dondo, but who teaches our students along with a team of volunteers the importance of caring for creation and the impact it has on poorer nations.
Trinity Growing Hope Team ' Plant a Tree for the Queen's Jubilee'!
The Queen's Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee, which invites people from across the UK to 'plant a tree for the Jubilee'.
We are very thankful that we were able to plant two apple trees, which were kindly donated to the school at the front entrance of Trinity to celebrate the Queen's incredible service to our nation. Service is central to our ethos at Trinity and the Queen is a true example of putting the nations needs above her own.
