Three starter sessions in one day!

Sun 26 Sep
Report written by Paul Salman

Five GoodGym runners came together at Stephens house and gardens to run and demonstrate three community Mission in one day. (is it a good gym record?) We warmed up and introduced ourselves then set off to St Mary‘s Church in Finchley. The oldest building in Barnet dating from the 12th century. The graveyard was full of litter as well as the local garden. So we set about clearing with litter pickers and bags donated by Barnet Council. It took longer than expected because of the level of refuse. We then jogged further down the hill to do some leafleting. (We occasionally do this to raise funds or awareness for a charity. Our third and final mission was to visit and help at Finchley way Open Space another kilometre away. It was great to see so many volunteers helping and it’s becoming an amazing open space for the public. We then returned back having completed three community missions in one day!

thanks for coming running and helping out

Environmental project preparation and visit to the Tiny Forest site.

Tue 26 Oct 17:00 pm
Finchley Road, London, NW11 6AH
Come to hear about how the Tiny Forest project is shaping up!

Barnet Council, GoodGym and Earthwatch are joining forces to plant a Tiny Forest in the borough we are mobilising to help!

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. You can find out more about the benefits of a Tiny Forest on the Earthwatch Website.

The project will need volunteers to plant the trees, build fences and look after it over the next year or two while it takes hold and develops. We hope that GoodGym members will be at the forefront of these efforts!

Planting is due to take place at the end of this year. In the run-up to that we are organising a few events to get familiar with the proposed site (off the North Circular, near Henlys Corner) and tell everyone more about Tiny Forests.

So please join us for a bit of litter picking and an information session. There will also be an optional Yoga/fitness session after for those who want to stay behind.
