Greenbelt actively promotes a climate of constant growth, learning and up-skilling, as we support education, physical activity, mindfulness and professional development for all.

From strong educational links with horticultural courses investing in the next generation of landscape professionals to ongoing sponsorship of youth sports teams and local events, we try to support and inspire a strong interest in nature in a variety of ways, even from an early age.

We want everyone to be as passionate as we are about the great outdoors.

  • Our staff support the Royal Horticultural Society's Campaign for School Gardening, which matches school pupils aged 11-19 with horticultural industry mentors over the course of a 10-week educational challenge each year.
  • Greenbelt recognises the holistic benefits which come with beautiful open spaces: studies show they reduce stress levels, promote calmness and emotional well-being, and can even improve recovery times after an injury.
  • We have a strong partnership with Abertay University's Urban Water Technology Centre, supporting training, inspection, maintenance and industry-leading research with our Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems, at more than 150 different locations across the UK.
  • Greenbelt supports professional development for staff, offering opportunities for up-skilling, training and growth which benefit the individual, as well as the business and our customers.
  • We have donated 200 trees to Warout Primary School, Fife, allowing schoolchildren aged 10-12 to plant their very own tree (in a range of 5 indigenous species) in the local area, alongside our suppliers and local ecology groups, as part of their outdoor learning outcomes.
  • We've also donated materials and machinery to a range of outdoor and horticultural courses at all levels, including classroom nature packs to the Ladybird Nurture Centre nursery, and a lawnmower to Lifeworks College.
