PARK at Trinity United Methodist Church in the GRAVEL parking lot and take the crosswalk carefully (watch for people turning left onto Garland) to meet at the farm. The Red bus line has a stop next door to the farm. We also encourage you to bicycle to Tri Cycle! The farm consists of the Rock House at 1705 N. Garland, the red barn behind it, and the 2 acres behind the barn. If you do not see anyone working in the garden or at the barn when you arrive, please knock on the front door of the Rock House, which is right in front of the farm at 1705 N. Garland.
