Isle of Wight Green Gym is an independent community group with over a decade of volunteering experience. By getting involved in practical conservation work we aim to benefit the countryside of the Isle of Wight, and improve our health at the same time.

We meet every Wednesday morning throughout the year at venues right across the Island. Please click on the links (left) to find out more about us;  to view our current programme click here.

As at 1 January 2018 over 600 people had taken part since we started, and we had worked at over 170 different locations across the Isle of Wight. Allowing for average attendance, that amounted to around 62,000 man hours!

To mark our 700th session on 30 August 2017, we joined Hants & IOW Wildlife Trust at their habitat-rich site at Sandown Meadows, helping to cut invasive willow, scrub and hay.

In 2009 we were awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award given to volunteer groups for outstanding work in their own communities. Please click here for the full story.
