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. For more information about our programme: www.tcv.org.uk/camden

Planting up our first bed

Taking the bull by the horns we got out there on a patch of tired lawn under a gorgeous tree, and just went for it.  Helped out by a trip to B&Q;'s discount bin, we got together around a dozen annuals, some shrubs and a grass, which should all grow happily into the space.Carefully removing the grass top layet, and putting down bark, have created a beautiful round border, which has caught the eyes of our neighbours.  So much so in fact, that we've already received a donation of one plant with a message "Please help me".Using 'brown' water from baths, we've kept it all going, and convinced some late flowering of our annuals.Fingers crossed we'll be putting in more of these around the place in due course.
