I see the grass beneath me I smell the winter sky And think to myself Don't pass me by

You don’t know what tomorrow holds. You don’t know how many more of these moments you’ll get. So grab them while they are here. Look while you can. Drink them in while you can. Don’t let the stillness pass you by.

Tower Hamlets

Leaf Encounter

Sat 20 Nov
Report written by Tower Hamlets runner

GoodGymers along with other volunteers met in the Stepney City Farm office for refreshments, ice breakers and a briefing of the next 3 hours ahead. We were then given a comprehensive tour of the premises before beginning our first and main task clearing leaves from the paths - whilst trying not to obstruct the visitors. (The Farm had a Farmers market, restaurant and classes going on – so it was a hive of activity whilst we were there). Once we completed our initial task - we had another short break before collecting rosehips (for making jam, tea etc.), and feeding pigs and rabbits. (I was given the chance to hold one of the cute rabbits – a true delight!) All in all, it was an enjoyable and rare opportunity to understand the workings of a City Farm through a variety of volunteering activities – which meant we never got bored during our 3 hours there.

There will be another volunteering session next Saturday*. Please see details here:

*Please note the expectation is that you will be there from 1-4pm – so please do not sign up unless you can commit to the full 3 hours).

Cycle track!

Sat 20 Nov
Report written by Cassandra

This was my second mission with the good gym. I met some fabulous people as there were other volunteers from the school along with us

The school cycle track was very overgrown and it was difficult to see the path, buy the end of the afternoon the track was very visible and the kids were already starting to use it again

Barnet Environmental Project Tiny Forest.

Thu 31 Mar 10:30 am
Junction of A406 and Falloden Way opposite Edge Hill Avenue, Green Space south of junction, London, N3 3JL
Helping to create new habitats for wildlife please register

Planting help required on this day to help produce a Tiny Forest with Earth watch and Barnet council. 24th of February morning and afternoon.

The agreed location is Henlys corner junction of A406 and the Finchley Road

Here is a precise what3words address, made of 3 random words. Every 3 metre square in the world has its own unique what3words address.


A Tiny Forest is a dense and rapidly growing native woodland in a small area. It will provide a protected habitat for wildlife, capture carbon, filter the air of harmful particulates and reduce flooding and soil loss.

Besides these important local effects, it is symbolic of our need to protect our wider environment and it is hoped it will provide an education and emotional engagement of our community. It’s also something that we will have to physically nurture as a group. Its a great fit for Goodgym!

These initiatives are gaining popularity across the UK, with organisations like EarthWatch and The Conservation Volunteers getting involved.

If you have ideas about how to promote this planting to the community please also get in touch. We want schools, community groups, artisans, news media and others to get involved.

Thanks to Daniel Mermelstein for introducing the idea to Goodgym Barnet.
