#GroundsWeek 2022

Barenbrug UK is proud to officially support #GroundsWeek 2022. The annual awareness week is hosted by the Grounds Management Association (GMA), the leading not-for-profit membership body for grounds professionals and volunteers, and this year aims to attract more grounds staff and volunteers into the sector through the week’s activities. 


#GroundsWeek will take place 28 February - 6 March 2022 and will build on last year’s launch of the week by focusing on the fulfilment that working in the sector can offer, highlighting that people with jobs in the outdoors, including grounds staff, are more fulfilled than those who work indoors.


With grounds management and turf care so vital to the delivery of sport, #GroundsWeek offers the opportunity to take a moment to reflect on the industry’s successes over the previous year.  To celebrate the week, Barenbrug UK will be spreading the word by posting on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #GroundsWeek.


Dr David Greenshields, Commercial manager at Barenbrug, says: 

"As the leading grass seed breeder and producer for the golf and wider sport markets, we take seriously our responsibility to support, share our knowledge and build relationships throughout the industry. We actively support member organisations, events and groups and promote the exceptional work of grounds managers and those who work in the industry.”


Geoff Webb, CEO of the GMA, says: 


“Many of us spend many hours at work throughout our lives, so it’s really important that we care about what we do. Grounds management is such a varied and rewarding role and we want to make even more people aware of the industry and its potential.”


“We’re extremely grateful to have the support of our members and partners who make this possible by supporting #GroundsWeek. By collaborating with us, it helps the GMA respond to industry challenges and learn how it can help to help tackle them.”
