The Islington Green Gym is led by trained volunteers, our partners Aquaterra and runs from 10:45 to 2pm every Monday (except bank holidays) meeting at Sunnyside Community Garden, Hazelville Rd, N19 3LX. Unlike other gardening and conservation projects, the emphasis is very much on health and fitness - volunteers warm up and cool down in preparation for a range of light to vigorous activities to suit all abilities.
Green Gyms are fun and free outdoor sessions where you will be guided in practical activities such as planting trees, sowing meadows and establishing wildlife ponds.
