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
- 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.
