Green Gym - is a FREE program predominantly 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 and giving back!All interested volunteers regardless of age are encouraged to apply!
‘The Habitat’ is a volunteer run community initiative that incorporates a native plant nursery and a community food garden. It is run in partnership with City of Ryde council and encourages locals to learn something new, meet new friends, share their knowledge and do something that will help the local environment.
You will be helping to maintain and harvest sustainable gardens, which incorporate habitat plants as well as and food plants. The plants grown can be donated or sold to local bushcare sites, schools, members of the community to help increase the native biodiversity in the area and create habitat havens in the area.
This Green gym site also sits alongside the beautiful Santa Rosa Park. Not only is this a habitat corridor lovely to walk through, it is also in need of a bit of TLC. So, as well as helping in the nursery, we will also be spending some time working within the park to help restore it to its previous glory and bring native birds back into the area.
