The Evergreen Philosophy

Evergreen is underpinned by Green thinking and values. We are inspired by today's global Slow Movement, which has at its heart the philosophy think global, act local - a phrase first coined by cultural ecologist Patrick Geddes. Our name alludes both to Scottish cultural history as well as to nature. 'Evergreen' is the title of Patrick Geddes' magazine, published at the height of both the Celtic Revival and the global Arts & Crafts Movement in Scotland. This was recently re-imagined and publised by The Word Bank and Edinburgh Old Town Development Trust.
