Helping this fantastic community gem of an organisation
Lynwood Gardens is a 'pocket forest' of mature woodland and glades situated in Broomhall virtually untouched for over 150 years. The site is located behind the Francis Newton pub and dates back to the 1820s as a rare example of the surviving house and garden of the wealthy Victorian cutlery manufacturer Francis Newton.
Lynwood Gardens is home to Sheffield Woodland Kindergarten, Sheffield’s only fully outdoor childcare provision. Regather Co-Op is agreeing a long lease for Lynwood Gardens with Sheffield City Council to secure the long term future and sustainability of the site.
Throughout the year we will helping the Friends of Lynwood Gardens and Sheffield Woodland Kindergarten to maintain and improve Lynwood Gardens.
This will involve mulching paths, removing weeds, lifting and tidying, digging, raking and pruning. As the seasons change and the days get longer we also want to get GoodGym volunteers involved in shaping the future of Lynwood Gardens.
We will provide gloves, water, tools and any other PPE needed for the task.
See you in the Forest!
If dark, please bring a head torch.
