ISLINGTON'S GREEN GYM IN ELTHORNE PARK, SUNNYSIDE RD, N19 


Islington's Green Gymnasts at work in Elthorne Park

In Elthorne Park’s Peace Garden I encountered the conservation and community gardening volunteers of Islington’s Green Gym, who are just starting to go to the Philip Noel Baker Peace Garden to work between 10.45 and 2pm every Monday. This is the only Green Gym in LB Islington, though there are others in other parts of London. Participants’ health and wellbeing is helped by gentle physical activity (the gardening plus warm up exercises) and from contact with nature and each other out-of-doors. The sessions are free. The Peace Garden is lovely, but will most certainly benefit from regular tending. If anyone would like to join in please call Trudi on 07768421881, or see more details here: http://www.tcv.org.uk/london/green-gym-london/islington-green-gym
