Green Pasture Projects.
We recognise that simply walking up a few hills will not solve all of the world's problems. We want to do more. The Green Pasture Projects are a long term focus for us as a company to do just that.
We are committed to building partnerships, spreading awareness and providing opportunities in 3 key areas.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem of some kind every year in the UK.
Poor mental health is fast becoming a major pandemic spreading throughout our society. As a team we have experienced first hand how nature can have a healing impact, both physically and mentally, on our lives. We are so eager to see others receiving the natural healing that an adventure into the wild can bring and as a result we are working hard to build relationships with companies of the same mindset.
"...we are determined to see people from a wider diversity of backgrounds experiencing the wonders of the outdoors."
Travelling throughout the Highlands and many different mountainous areas across Europe it has become apparent to us that these places tend to lack diversity.
In a country of such integrated cultures why should that stop in the mountains? At Lost Sheep Guiding we are determined to see people from a wider diversity of backgrounds experiencing the wonders of the outdoors. We are working hard to develop partnerships with like minded groups so that all can have equal opportunities in the hills.
Our home, the Cairngorms, is one of the largest national parks in Europe. It represents a truly biodiverse and unique ecosystem. Where, if you are lucky, you will find 1/4 of all rare and endangered species within the British Isles. The notorious capercaillies roam the ancient caledonian forest floors, whilst the majestic golden eagles soar high above the arctic Cairngorm plateau.
A huge part of our mission is to build partnerships with conservation projects and to convey the importance of caring for this magical environment. We believe the best way to spread this message is not just through words but through the experiences that we share in the mountain.
