Green Gym - is a FREE conservation program, predominantly for anyone aged 50-80, that aims to improve health, wellbeing and create vibrant community spaces. It’s outdoors, it’s fun and you’ll be learning new skills and giving back! All interested volunteers regardless of age are encouraged to apply!
Our Green Gym activities will focus on tasks such as weeding and mulching the gardens, helping to fill and plant the raised garden beds and harvesting the varied produce, including vegetables, edible flowers and native bush foods. As well as harvesting, activities can include seed collection and plant propagation which is such an important part of the growth and future of the community gardens and it is helping build up the important stores of seeds.
The gardens at Randwick Community Centre serve an educational purpose for the local community where people of all ages can “learn-by-doing”. It also creates a shared community space that brings people together, building valuable social connections. Thirdly, the produce is available for harvest by participating members of the local community.
With raised garden beds and vertical gardens, this project is well suited to varying abilities and levels of capability. The site is a welcoming green oasis in the heart of Randwick, a fantastic mixture of parkland, landscaped and natural areas. We know you’ll begin to relax and unwind in the tranquil settings while enjoying the company of like-minded people. Remember to go at your own pace – take it as easy as you like or make it more challenging.
