Take a healthy dose of nature – Green Gym Fairfield
Green Gym is a free program for anyone aged 50-80 in practical conservation that aims to improve health, wellbeing and create vibrant community spaces.
It’s outdoors, it’s fun and you’ll be learning new skills, meeting new people and giving back!
There are 3 locations around the Greater Sydney Region:
Tuesdays and Thursday mornings
Where: Fairfield Community Nursery (Behind the Nalawala Community Hall and in the Fairfield Showground)
Time: 8:30am – 11:30am
A typical Green Gym session goes for 3 hours and will involve a warm up activity to get you ready for the day and a cool down after your session. You be guided in practical conservation and gardening work such as planting and potting, collecting seeds, watering, harvesting food, mulching and much more.
A delicious and healthy morning or afternoon tea is provided, and engaging conversations encouraged. We encourage you to come along once a week to feel the full benefits of the program.
A single designated pick up and drop off area will be provided for each location.
FAIRFIELD COMMUNITY NURSERY:
Located in the heart of Fairfield just behind the Nalawala Community Hall at Fairfield Showground, sits a new native community nursery. The nursery provides a vital source of native plants to the surrounding community members and green spaces. In fact it produces around 80,000 tube stocks a year and with your help that number can grow! You will be assisting local nursery volunteers with vital activities such as planting, potting and the collection of seeds to keep the nursey growing. You will gain important skills and learn all about the world of native Australian plants.
Please wear sturdy shoes/boots, long pants, and long sleeve shirts. Hats, sunscreen, and water are a must.
We encourage people who are interested, to give us a call to discuss the green Gym further and to answer any of your questions (02 9331 1610)
