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

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.

There has to be recognition that drivers use the roads through #holyroodpark at the expense of park users there to enjoy the park, relax, and breathe clean air. Not all usage is equivalent. https://t.co/154HqVTaxD
