Peter is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
Peter completed a community mission. Instead of watching TV or lying in bed, Peter was out there making their community a better place to be. For making that choice they have earned the community cape.

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!
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.
It might have turned cold but we kept warm up and down stairs delivery flyers letting local residents know about upcoming tree planting in their area.
We also had time to clear and prepare the ground around existing trees in the hedgerow to find gaps for where the new trees will go!
We’ll be helping to prepare Westcroft close for an upcoming tree planting event we’ve got some weeding and raking to do as we’ll as put up some posters and leafleting the local residents.
Please bring gloves and a head touch if you have them.
