Green Gym - Exercise to make a difference

An exciting new opportunity to get involved in FREE healthy, social, conservation and garden-based ‘Green Gym’ activities will be starting soon at TCV Skelton Grange Environment Centre.
 
Running on Mondays from 20 November 2017, Green Gym participants will enjoy a range of activities aimed at improving health and wellbeing and taking advantage of the opportunities provided by the beautiful Skelton Grange site, a hidden gem of natural wildlife-friendly environment in South Leeds.

Meeting at 9.30am for a 10.00am start, activities will run until 1.00pm including sitting together for a free lunch, and may involve any of the following:
  • Practical conservation – for instance managing woodland, looking after wildlife ponds, paths and meadows, woodworking and creating new structures
  • Fruit and vegetable gardening
  • Wildlife walks and surveys
  • Creating and maintaining wildlife friendly features including birdboxes and feeders
  • Seasonal crafts and artwork
  • Cooking and tasting sessions


All resources and equipment required will be provided; participants are encouraged to wear sturdy clothing and footwear that they don’t mind getting dirty as sessions will be outdoors wherever possible.

“We can’t wait to get our Green Gym up and running and look forward to sharing the benefits of our site with new people!”  Colin Green - TCV Project Officer

Participants will benefit from support from friendly TCV staff and volunteers, free food and refreshments. There will be plenty of opportunity for learning and sharing new skills during enjoyable and healthy activities and there's the chance to meet like-minded people in a stunning local environment.
