Green Gym for Seniors in Sydney is a FREE program for anyone aged 50-80 in practical conservation that aims to improve health, wellbeing and create vibrant community spaces.
Morning session on Tuesday and Thursday – 8:30am to 11:30am
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 nursery growing. You will gain important skills and learn all about the world of native Australian plants.
You morning tea will be spent in the Nalawala Community Hall, which is an incredible innovation of sustainable buildings; an eco-friendly process that uses giant straw bales as building materials. It is a hub for the community to learn about sustainability, environmental issues, and many exciting workshops.
