A NEW project to build confidence and knowledge in being outdoors and being active is set to arrive in Kilwinning next month.

From Wednesday, August 7, a Green Gym session will be held weekly from 10am-1pm at Kilwinning Library.

Green Gyms are fun and free outdoor sessions where you will be guided in practical activities such as horticulture/ gardening, sowing wildflowers, healthy walking, educational activities, and environmental art.

Unlike other conservation projects, the emphasis is very much on health and fitness - volunteers warm up and cool down in preparation for a range of light to vigorous activities to suit all abilities.
