Common Ground is an innovative organization that has been growing since the seed for a nature based project was found during an ecopsychology conference in 2012.
In 2015 planning permission was approved for an education, retreat and therapy centre based on the farm in Co Fermanagh Northern Ireland. In the same year Common Ground N.I. was established as a not-for-profit Community Interest Company.
Since then the work has gone on to develop the activities, the networks, the partnerships and a community of support for Common Ground. There have been an abundance of therapeutic groups, creativity, artistic events, mini-conferences, gatherings and celebrations of the seasonal cycles. Common Ground has proven its worth at local, provincial and national levels.
However the true potential of the original vision cannot be manifested without the buildings to accommodate the planned activities which include:
nature based retreats, expressive arts in nature, nature based therapies and professional trainings in ecopsychology and ecotherapy.
During this pivotal time at the end of 2020 we are reconstructing the website and evolving the organization. In essence it is a new beginning. If you are interested in getting involved then please get in touch.
We remain open for individual ecotherapy, professional consultation, bespoke training, horticulture therapy group spring 2021, rental of innovative rural conference/meeting space, enquiries for collaboration and our seasonal cycle celebrations.
We also need onsite volunteers on an on going basis.
