Across Scotland community groups are becoming more involved in their local greenspaces. Our 2017 greenspace survey found significant increases in people wanting to have more of a say in how their greenspace is managed and to get involved in activities to improve their local greenspace.
There are many ways to start a greenspace project – you could establish a Friends’ group for your local park or greenspace or form a community growing group.
Friends of Parks groups play a vital role in enhancing and protecting local parks.
More people are getting together locally to grow their own food.
If you want to become a charity or SCIO, there is a lot of help and guidance available.
