education helps us appreciate where we are, and connects us into global
issues. Understanding and experiencing the relationship between ourselves and
our landscape contributes to a healthier future. Through this process we can
reveal and work towards the distinct potential of each place.
Ground brings a
place-based approach to ecological education and consultancy. Based in
Argyll, Scotland, we organize and deliver outdoor learning projects and
land provides a rich ground for experiencing the depth of our relationship
with landscape. Getting outside and focusing on the places around us
ties together ecology, history, and geography as we find them in our everyday
lives. Exploring our locality
provides the chance for re-connection with the deeper forces which shape
us: the elements, the land, the friendships that we depend on.
participative research, project evaluation and organizational development, Open
Ground can help your
organization grow. We will draw out the ecological and cultural
potential of your locality, helping you increase the well-being of both
people and place.
Open Ground aims to work with individuals, schools and businesses for a
more grounded sustainable way of life.
