#GroundsWeek, an awareness campaign launched by the Grounds Management Association, is the first-ever celebratory week highlighting the vital role of grounds staff, volunteers, and the role that the broader turf-care sector plays in making sport possible and keeping green spaces accessible.
After one of the most challenging years the industry has faced, #GroundsWeek launches on March 1-7 to help inspire, inform and advise on the wonderful world of groundsmanship to inspire the next generation of talent and volunteers. It’s time to raise awareness and celebrate.
Given the challenges in getting physical activity and sport Back to Play, #GroundsWeek aims to showcase the amazing work of grounds staff and volunteers – despite amateur sport coming to a grinding halt. It also comes after a year where parks and green spaces have been valuable to the public’s health – with increased use for ‘daily exercise’ and physical activity.
For individuals, organisations, or clubs who want to get involved and support the turf care sector, The GMA is sharing a ‘#GroundsWeek Toolkit’ which will include graphics you can use, social posts you can share and fun ways you and your organization can get involved.
It is also running a unique webinar, GMA Live - #GroundsWeek Special. Make sure you follow The GMA on social media for all the latest updates - Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.
