Greenspaces should be welcoming places for play, exercise and enjoyment, helping to improve health and wellbeing and supporting natural habitats and green corridors.

Each year ELGTdelivers a project programme aimed at promoting, creating and improving greenspaces across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

We work with communities, landowners, agencies and other partners at all stages of a project, from first principles to completion, including:

  • first stage project development and costing
  • community consultation
  • fundraising
  • project management and implementation

We also offer a wide range of community engagement services including:

  • delivery of community events to promote involvement in greenspaces
  • Forest Schools activities
  • Branching Out mental health in woodland services
  • guided walks
  • conservation volunteering
  • fitness activities

If you know of a greenspace that could do with being improved, or want to discuss a potential project, please get in touch.
