Common Ground is internationally recognised for playing a unique role in the arts and environmental fields, distinguished by the linking of nature with culture, focussing upon the positive investment people can make in their own localities, championing popular democratic involvement, and by inspiring celebration as a starting point for action to improve the quality of our everyday places. We offer ideas, information and inspiration through publications and projects such as the campaign for LOCAL DISTINCTIVENESS, Orchards and Community Orchards, Apple Day, Field Days, Parish Maps, Flora Britannica, Tree Dressing Day, and Confluence.
