|History of the Trust|
|The Patrick Geddes Memorial Trust promotes the study of living society in its environment, according to the principles and practice of Professor Sir Patrick Geddes (1854-1932). He was one of the first biologists to stress the prime importance of habitat in what would now be called ecology, using a method of survey and synthesis developed in Scotland, France, the Near East and India and based on the principle of "Place-Work-Folk".|
