About us
Groundwork Associates is a small consultancy with a big focus on sustainability, common sense and responsiveness.

Groundwork Associates’ founder Annie Perkins saw many community and farmer-led initiatives struggling with the collaborative processes needed to achieve effective change. She formed a team of people with the diverse set of skills needed, and in 2002 Groundwork Associates was born. Over the years, Groundwork has earned respect for its expertise, adaptability, and well-established relationships with scientists, farmers, industry groups, and government bodies.

The Greenspace

In 2006, we created our very own base, The Greenspace. Annie’s passion for sustainability and the land led her to lovingly transform a 1920s bungalow into office space and a boutique venue for meeting and events. This award-winning space, surrounded by productive organic gardens and eco-sourced native plants, is available for hire.
