Project TRIUMPH, a Kennedy Center Community Experience Program based in Trumbull, recently won a blue ribbon for its zinnias garden in the Greenfield Hill Grange Fair in Fairfield.

Eric Frisk of Fairfield, manager of Drew Park Community Garden in Fairfield, designed the beds and coordinates the Community Garden in Fairfield. An ACT (Adult and Children Together) grant provided the funds for construction materials and Green Cycle of Fairfield donated soil to fill the raised beds. Kennedy Center staff Nick DeFazio and Mike Dial help maintain the garden along with the consumers.

The Kennedy Center Community Experience Programs, also called Day Support Options (DSO), are located in various neighborhood settings and support small groups of individuals with a myriad of abilities and disabilities. Each program emphasizes the development of an appropriate skill base to expand learning, choice-making and inclusion within each person’s local community.
