What impact will this have?

  • For wildlife and the environment, we plant and encourage greater habitat diversity that will be more resilient in urban surrounding and support a wider range of wildlife.
  • For ourselves, volunteering with Camden Green Gym supports the 5 ways to well-being. It’s a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and improve your physical and mental well-being whilst improving your local environment.
