Green Gym is a scheme which inspires you to improve both your health and the environment at the same time.
Experienced leaders guide you through a range of practical projects, giving you the opportunity to tackle physical jobs in the outdoors – improving your fitness, boosting your practical skills and confidence, and benefitting your local green spaces.
A Green Gym offers:
- Free access to an organised programme of outdoor environmental tasks with a group of like-minded individuals
- Regular sessions of rewarding physical activity
- A variety of tasks for all ages and abilities
- Opportunities for training and developing new skills, using traditional tools
When you go to a Green Gym you won’t be squaring up to a rowing machine or weights every time. One day you might be cutting back invasive undergrowth, the next planting trees or wildflowers, the next repairing steps on a public path or maybe clearing out an overgrown pond. You might even learn how to make benches and bat boxes.
