Event description
Community Land Scotland, Community Woodlands Association and greenspace scotland bring you a day of learning and inspiration.

About this Event

This workshop is for community groups looking to own or lease green spaces or woodlands in urban areas; and organisations that support communities to do this.

This workshop will explore:

  • Routes into ownership

You will also get a chance to hear from groups who have brought land into community ownership or manage urban green space for community benefit.
