The Conservation Volunteers believe the quality of our natural environment is a powerful driver of health and well-being. We use the Green Gym project to promote better health and well-being, a socially alternative to conventional gyms. The Green Gym is a natural workout in the outdoors, increasing physical activity, promoting mental well-being and improving the local environment.
The Green Gym is delivered right across Northern Ireland supporting people of all ages abilities and backgrounds to become involved and build confidence towards sustained healthier lifestyle choices. Making the link to healthy eating the Green Gym is used to develop an increasing number of food growing projects, community garden and allotments.
