 ‘The Good Life’ Comes to Trinity College!

The ‘Trinity Let’s Grow’ student led initiative was unveiled this week as part of the launch of Trinity College Dublin’s 11th annual Green Week. It involves the distribution of free ‘Grow Packs’ consisting of seeds and compost. The project’s aim is for students to plant the seeds and use the grown produce in their own kitchens. It is hoped that this project will result in a thriving community garden in the College.

To kick off the project, three student leaders of the ‘Trinity Let’s Grow’ initiative, Kathleen Keady, Molly Garvey and Callum Bateson, dressed as Farmers presented Senator David Norris and the Registrar, Prof Shane Allwright with their first ‘Grow Packs’.

Highlights  include the Simon Perry Sustainability Symposium 2013 ‘Making Green Campuses Green’, a Bicycle Fashion Show, a Green Literature Night presented by DU Modern Languages Society, workshops on vegetable and flower growing and bicycle maintenance, special ‘Go Green and Eat Green’ menus in catering outlets on campus, a SU and V de P ‘Clothes drive’, guided walks highlighting Trinity’s trees, bird life and nature, technology & architecture and Biodiversity Bingo.
