The Trading Shed is now open every Sunday 11.00 - 13.00
Reducing Use of Plastic
This year the Trading Shed will be offering the choice of plastic or paper bags for items that are sold loose such as single fertilisers and compost activator. If you choose the paper option, storing your purchases somewhere dry will be important. We also encourage you to re-use the plastic bags that the Trading Shed does issue or of course bring in your own container. We will continue to buy in bulk where possible which then gives the option of selling smaller measures in compostable, re-usable, recycled containers.
We are in liaison with our main supplier to move to brands that use recycled plastic for packaging and/or plastic that can be recycled.
To order specific items such as specialist composts, incinerators, codling moth/plum moth/leek moth pheromone traps, posts, grit and tools, email firstname.lastname@example.org for details and prices.
The Trading Shed is managed by the site committee with many additional volunteers. It is located in the yard at the Montenotte Road end of the site and sells a wide range of items at low prices including seeds, composts, manure, trugs, canes, fertilisers, soil improvers, netting, ground cover and fleece. Proceeds from sales support site activities.
