The Conservation Volunteers Camden

Camden Green Gym is an exciting nature conservation project that keeps you fit while giving to the local community. We are working on different sites, mainly: Waterlow Park, Belsize Wood Local Nature Reserve, Adelaide Nature Reserve, Regent's Park and Primrose Hill and other sites of nature conservation across Camden.Each day we carry on a range of exciting nature conservation activities going from litter picking and vegetation clearance to small carpentry work, creating steps and habitat walls, and pond, meadow, community garden and woodland management. All this in small hidden gems of nature in a central location in London.We operate every Tuesday and Thursday 10:45am - 2pm, meeting generally on site.

#giveXcollaborate 2016 campaign highlights

Wow, this year our Summer volunteering campaign went from strength to strength! After the success of last year we doubled the size and impact of the campaign, supporting 24 diverse community projects over 38 volunteer days! 409 of our brilliant volunteers gave a total of 2379 hours of their time, helping community projects to complete a whopping 85 community goals! Some of the campaign achievements included: 2 ponds installed 13 fruit trees planted 30kg of surplus vegetables rescued 6600 spring bulbs planted 200 meters of native hedgerow planted Projects supported ranged from city farms and community gardens to beekeeping projects, and we spread our wings out of London this year, supporting two projects in Stafford.For more #giveXcollaborate highlights see this gallery of highlights On top of this, £13, 854 was donated for important tools and materials – all-in-all a job well done, I think you’ll agree. Onwards and upwards for 2017!
