Our mission – to provide everyone in Edinburgh and the Lothians with access to quality greenspaces, which can help to improve their health & wellbeing

Covid-19 Update

In response to the new lockdown restrictions, all community activities have been suspended.

Our staff are currently working from home. However, we are keen to keep in contact with the communities that we work with and will be updating our website and social media once we have a clearer idea of timescales. In addition, we will endeavour to continue posting, on Facebook, activities that people can do at home to help everyone stay motivated.

In the meantime, we encourage everyone to visit their valuable local greenspaces. They offer you the chance to take part in daily exercise, to de-stress and engage with nature while also helping to improve your overall health and wellbeing. You can also be kept up to date through our social media pages on Twitter and Facebook.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters during these difficult times; we are having to adjust again to doing things differently and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

I hope that this is of some reassurance to you and if there is anything else you think we could do, or if you would like to discuss things further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch through our contact page.

Stay safe everyone.

Since 1991 we have been working to improve greenspaces for the benefit of people through practical environmental and educational projects in partnership with local communities and health-focused initiatives as a way to support more people getting outdoors. Our projects are designed to benefit people, wildlife, landscape and heritage and to help connect people with their natural environment.

By providing a comprehensive portfolio of environmental project development, management and fundraising services, we help ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment.


Great to see the Shale Trail in West Lothian open. Take a walk along the route and see what you can find about the Shale industry from the QR codes that feature along the trial. If you need more information about the route visit https://t.co/igcsnYTmYI @LoveWestLothian

Such a lovely chat with our Walking Group members today. We talked about snow emergencies, our first houses and languages and dialects! Shame we can't be outside but so good to stay connected. @nhs_lothian @PathsforAll @Edinburgh_CC #walkinggroup #StayConnected

A fantastic meeting to get the year started. Partnership working creates more opportunities. Let's do this! #DumbiedykesWorkingGroup #partnershipworking @Edinburgh_CC @NHS_Lothian

Lovely to see the @Goodtreesnc1 Families this morning for family yoga on Zoom! We’d rather be outdoors being active but was lovely to see each other, getting moving safely at home. Finished off beautifully by a relaxing story and a wee snuggle in ❤️ #family #catchingup #COVID19

Well done to the youth volunteers on creating their very own podcast!
