HERE ARE THE TOPICS WE'LL BE CHATTING ABOUT DURING OUR SESSION
(WE WILL BE FILLING IN YOUR 'WILDSCAPING BALANCE SHEETS' (HELPING YOU TO SEE WHAT YOU 'TAKE' FROM THE PLANET AND WHAT YOU CAN 'GIVE BACK' MOST EASILY, CELEBRATING ALL OF OUR WILD WINS) THROUGHOUT THE SESSION AND YOU'LL BE EMAILED A COPY AFTERWARDS.
A FRESH 'WILD' START
Starting from scratch: we will chat about 'living wildly' (without sacrifice). We'll start off our session making sure that we all understand what 'wild' and 'nature' really means and examining our human position within our world (so that later on we can chat about your individual home's position within your local and global environment).
POWERING/FUELLING OUR LIVES & RESIDENCES
- What power sources are there for us & our homes to use?
- What and how can we BEST take from the planet (through a form of energy) to live our lives to the max?
- How can we power our homes and lifestyles in such a way that we are still living in harmony with the world around us and all of the other species that share our spaces?
- How/what can we give back (so that we are operating more in balance with our planet)?
All of the ways that we choose to spend our money can help us to live in wild harmony with our planet. We'll be chatting about all of the options available to you all, to maximise your influences in manifesting a wilder world.
(YOUR HOME INTERIOR)
We'll begin by looking at the kind of property you live in (House with a garden & a balcony / House with a garden / House with no garden but a balcony / House with no garden and no balcony / Flat with garden / Flat with no garden / Flat with balcony / Flat with no garden or balcony) and the decisions you can make within the space...
Have a look at some of these IDEAS to get an initial impression of some of the options available to you, that we'll be chatting about.
We will be looking into your unique home/properties, making sure that this session is tailored to what you ALL each most want from your homes (to benefit yourselves and your loved ones) and then looking at how you can have everything you desire in as planet friendly a way as possible...
A. Your interior environment itself (talking about the air fresheners you use / sharing your spaces with house plants).
B. Let's look at everything that you use to mark out your space (furniture / rugs / painting & prints / lights / decorations).
C. We will chat about your daily life (cleaning products & kitchen products / bath & body products, cosmetics & perfumes / beverages / books / TV & other technology / stationary / sports gear / pet products / blankets & throws).
D. What are some brilliant clothing options (from casual to party to work to outdoor, as well as accessories)?
E. There are A LOT of creative recycling options that you may not be aware of (and a lot of ways to upcycle your 'rubbish' in ways that might also bring you a small profit).
F. We'll chat about First Aid materials and home medicines (there are a lot of planet friendly options available).
G. What about your home interior 'territory & boundaries' (what to do about sharing your interior with other species, if/when they appear)?
EXTERIOR HOME SPACES
YOUR OWN ‘WILD EXTERIOR’
Whether your home is owned/rented and your 'outside space' is a home window box or a large garden, during our session we'll look at what you want most from the space for yourself and your loved ones and even your pets.
These are just some examples of the helpful questions that we'll be going through, to determine how your exterior spaces can serve both your own desires and local wildlife...
A. What do I really want from this space, to benefit myself/my family/my pets?
B. Are there any spaces that I/we can give up to other species, for them to use?
C. Is there a way to collaborate with other species in these spaces?
Eg. Can I install Bird & Bat Bricks / Hedgehog Highways / Letting trees grow / Putting fresh water out every day & night / Letting plants self seed themselves and claim bits of territory for themselves?
D. What boundaries do I need to put in place? (Eg. I’d like to have wildlife only use the bottom of my garden and I’d like to keep the grass short near the house, to sunbathe on).
MANAGING YOUR SPACES
We'll put a list together of what contractors you might need to hire (even if that's just a gardener, for a small aspect of your plans).
Eg. A handyman to cut a Hedgehog Highway in your fence or builders to install Bat & Bird Bricks.
MAINTAINING YOUR SPACES
Over time there will be new challenges to your home boundaries that you might not have expected, as wildlife (plants and animals) celebrate new space/habitat for them to have/move into.
Whatever your challenges, there are organisations dedicated to helping us all to live more in harmony with wildlife - without sacrifice - and I'll be chatting to you about them and leaving you with a list of the best companies to call upon, should you ever need to.
(If you have any challenges or concerns, Wildscaping Worldwide is also always available to help - FREE - with any ongoing queries).
SUPPORTING 'ENVIRONMENTAL EMERGENCY SERVICES'
Harmonising with our wild world is still a work in progress and - as such - supplementary support still needs to be given, as we humans evolve into more planet friendly practices. In our session I'll go through a lot of the emergency environmental non profits that you can support or even volunteer with to best help us all to better integrate into our planet more harmoniously.
Self love and self care are the foundations of living wildly. If we aren't loving and looking after ourselves, we cannot thrive in this world and help others to thrive.
We will wrap up our session by discussing the various ways that you can best enjoy the benefits of wildscaping your home as well as chatting about some daily 'wild' practices to help you live your life to the max: you deserve it.
