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.

We had a very educational catch up at our zoom session today. We discussed Scots words such as gullie, drookit, puddock, glakit & dwam! We talked about girnel, messages, shivery bite, bunker, skullery and my fav.... jeelie piece! #scotslanguage #walkinggroup #talkinggroup

We're delighted that we got to plant some more fruit trees in Campbell Park this morning! The orchard has now grown from 15 to 30 trees, so in a few years time they'll be plenty of tasty fruit for the local community and wildlife #orchard #planttrees @EdinOutdoors @Edinburgh_CC

Visit Little France Park while spring is in the air! A fantastic greenspace next to the Royal Infirmary Hospital with great wildlife, picnic spots and accessible paths. Check out the site's active travel map: https://t.co/O5nG3WUkPM @EdinUniMedicine @RIE_Lothian @NHS_Lothian
