How to contact our team nationally and around the country
It's well known that greener streets are
healthier streets and for 30 years now Groundwork has helped
communities create their own gardens, play areas, allotments and
parks. People will gather together around gardening - and
with food miles adding more to the price of fruit and vegetables in
the shops, more and more communities are banding together to grow
We work with community groups, housing associations and local
authorities to improve all sorts of green spaces for people to use
for exercise, or to sit in, kids to play and people of all ages to
enjoy being outdoors.
Our landscape archietects want
places to look cleaner, street to be safer and outside areas to be
green and beautiful so everyone has quality green spaces nearby no
matter where they live.
