Derwent Green Gym

Gardening for fitness, health and pleasure.

Open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10am to 2.30pm

The Green Gym has been at Little Chester Allotments for over 12 years. We provide a friendly, easygoing and pleasant environment for anyone who wants to do a little bit of gardening for exercise or to improve their mental well-being. We have a large poly tunnel, orchard, veg. plot and flower garden. 

Lots of different people come and join us each week. Some may have a learning disability and others may be recovering  from or still struggling with a mental health issue while others may have a physical disability.  Some want to work on their own while others are happier being part of a group activity.  

All our activities are run by volunteers and we do not receive any funding from anyone so must raise all our running costs ourselves.  We do this by running specialist courses and having a stall at Little Chester Allotments plant sale day and a small contribution from the people who attend.

The kettle rarely goes cold so if you are passing and want to call in to see what we are doing we would love to show you around and we might even get the biscuits out.
