Welcome to Green Estate
Green Estate is part of a family of third sector organisations that operate from the Manor and Castle areas in South Sheffield. Our story started in 1998. Our inner city area, like many others, was suffering some of the worst effects of social, economic and environmental poverty. Although in an appalling state, it was clear that this area itself had an exceptional history, significant areas of green spaces and a lot of people that wanted to make a difference. This inspired us up take on the role of stewards to what we called ‘our Green Estate’.
The idea was pretty simple - if the relationship between the land and people were made to work again, just as they would have for instance in a rural area or in the past, then we could bring life back to the waste lands and make the green environment a valued and productive asset.
Making an inner city estate as attractive and successful as say, the Chatsworth Estate, is perhaps a slightly large ambition but every year the goal doesn’t seem quite so far off.
Today, as you will discover when you explore this website, we weave competitive commercial services together with many other landscape, cultural and social initiatives. Together they are designed to make a difference to peoples lives in our neighbourhood.
