Leyton Jubilee Park Green Gym

The Conservation Volunteers Green Gym Programme

Leyton Jubilee Park, Leyton

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!

New trees will be planted next year and the street will continue grow as the plants find their roots.
