Gardening

Our garden is a shared space, so please take time to come and meet the regular volunteers or contact the Trinity Community Garden group before you start to garden.

If you are interested in taking part in the organic gardening project, please join one of our regular volunteer sessions: see the Garden what's on page or check the Bulletin Board in the Outdoor Kitchen.

We are a permaculture garden and encourage users to keep it organic - please do not use herbicides, pesticides or black plastic mulches.

Please respect the space and leave the site free from debris.

Gardening can result in bruising, blisters and sores that require skincare. Please take care when gardening and where appropriate protective clothing.

We recommend you:

  • wear a hat, long sleeves, sunglasses, a high factor sunscreen and gardening gloves

  • drink lots of water

  • avoid gardening in greenhouses and in polytunnels in the full sun

  • are aware of correct manual handling procedures and do not overload yourself when carrying heavy/large items

  • are inducted properly by the Garden Coordinator before using tools/equipment

If you are unsure or feel you require advice or training, contact the Garden Coordinator who can assist you.

Play area

Our play area is unsupervised - please do not leave young children unattended.

The space has been designed by The Green Play Project for enjoyment by children of all ages. The space does incorporate an element of risk, in order to provide challenges for the children that use it.

Everyone using the play area must show consideration and respect for other users.
