Leyton Jubilee Park Green Gym

The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) Green Gym Programme

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.

Unlike other 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.

In fact, almost a third more calories can be burnt in some Green Gym sessions than in an average aerobics class!

Leyton Jubilee Park is the newest of The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym. The team at Leyton Jubilee Park have been on a tree planting mission! Since starting, over 400 trees have been planted on the plateau! They have also been quite a social team, already joining forces with the TCV Bat Team and helping them plant 30 trees on the last day of their tree planting task.

In future sessions the team will be looking after the new trees, mulching them to stop weeds growing, and pruning them into the best shape.
