As good stewards of the land, ecology and environment are important to the Holy Trinity Monastery community. On the 132 acres, there is not only the church, living quarters, offices and dining area, but much of the land is devoted to farming. The farm work and much of the building construction has been done by community members and oblates.

The enclosed court yard around the church is a gardener's delight with the rose garden, flowers and plants of many varieties. The lovely fountain, surrounded by benches, gives the visitor an opportunity to just sit and soak in the peace. Another rose garden is down in the plaza near the Gallery Trinitas and Trinity Library.

The farm has sheep, chickens and grazing cows. Pecan trees provide a means of income.

In 1992, the Bureau of Land Management helped dedicate a 1.3 mile bird sanctuary trail that borders along the property and the San Pedro River. In 1993 the monastery received the "Conservation Co-operator of the Year" award presented by San Pedro National Resource Conservation District.

With the beauty of the large, tree lined pond, visitors attain a peace and solitude that is difficult to find in a busy world. A Oriental garden is also a place for meditation. It has a small pond, oriental bridge and lovely flowers to lend its feeling of serenity.

Visitors who have their own recreational vehicles can stay in the Monte Cassino RV Park housed on the property. During their stay, they are invited to join the community in daily prayer and Eucharist, plus other activities.
