COMMON SENSE GARDEN SAFETY is based on the safe gardening guidelines written by the author of this article and published in the Carrs Park Community Garden – Gardeners’ Guide and in the book, Seed To Seed, published by the Seed Savers Network.
Common sense garden safety
Our community gardens must be maintained in a condition conducive to their safe use by gardeners and to visits by non-gardeners.

Garden safety is very much about common sense and thinking about what we do. Garden safety is simple.
