Would You Like A 'Wilder' Organisation?
1 - TO - 1
[AND AN OPTIONAL FREE 45 MINUTE CATCH UP WITHIN THE MONTH]
A BESPOKE SERVICE (ACCOMPANYING FREE PDF COPIES OF THE WW HANDBOOKS) TO HELP YOUR ORGANISATION GET A LITTLE WILD.
WE'LL BE WORKING TOGETHER TO WILDLY INTEGRATE YOUR ORGANISATION TO HARMONISE BETTER WITH OUR PLANET
WILD BENEFITS & SOME IMMEDIATE RETURNS ON YOUR INVESTMENT
Your £250 investment in a wild work place/healthy work force will offer a return on investment in the following ways:
Using a lot less power (in innovative & creative ways that still enable the daily efficient running of your organisation) will be kind to your company/charitable bank accounts AND to our planet overall.
INCREASED WELL BEING IN YOUR WORKPLACE
By recognising and spending time within the 'wild world' that we're all part of (all of the plantlife & wildlife that your exterior spaces will start to feature and that your workforce can enjoy, for example) your organisation's staff and volunteers can benefit from increased emotional well being and calm throughout your working day.
Your newly wild workplace exterior will result in the absorption of vehicle emissions, meaning a healthier life for yourself and your work force.
CLEANER LOCAL DRINKING WATER & LOCAL FLOOD PREVENTION
Rain water that falls on 'wild' land is filtered (cleansed and purified) through wild land/soil very slowly - as opposed to bouncing off concrete or loose soil that isn't held together by the roots of trees and plants - before any run off finally makes its way into sewers to be further cleansed by local water authorities. The denser, packed soil and the absorption of rain water by trees and plants prevents a lot of rain water surging into the sewers all in one go (which is how pipes burst and flooding occurs) as well as preventing the accumulation of rain water around your property as the water takes time to drain away.
GREAT PR AND AWARD OPPORTUNITIES
A chance to apply for and win local 'green initiative' awards: raising your profile in the community, enabling new press and photo opportunities for your work place - even if you're a home based office - and setting an example (establishing yourself as a trail blazer) for other organisations within your industry to follow. (Both Saint Mark's Church and Alsager Council applied for and won community and industry eco-awards with some of our Wildscaping Worldwide designs and you can design your own equally award worthy and unique wild exterior space, based on our advice, during this 2 hour consultation session).
LIVING IN GREATER HARMONY WITH OUR PLANET
(LOCALLY & GLOBALLY)
By sharing all of our spaces (land and property) as best we can and being fully aware of how investing our capital, be that £50,000 or 50p, into services and products that enables ALL of our planet's different life forms to thrive, we're enabling greater health and well being for our planet as a whole.
BEFORE OUR SESSION
You'll receive a PDF copies of BOTH handbooks, some info-packs and worksheets 24 hrs hours prior to our meeting, that we will work through (during our online session) and that you can keep. These are:
A. A diagram to help us share our exterior spaces most effectively and without sacrificing our own territories, boundaries & well being.
B. A 'Spending to Wildscape' checklist.
C. An info-pack listing a lot of the emergency environmental non profits that you can support to best help us all to better integrate into our planet more harmoniously.
D. A 'Wildscaping Balance Sheet.'
E. An info-pack on how best we can power/fuel our organisations to run off less whilst still living our lives to the max with lots of data & links as well as innovative & creative suggestions.
F. A self care (in life and in the workplace) checklist with an info-sheet on why this is SO important.
G. You'll receive a PDF 'We Are A Planet-Friendly Organisation' certificate (after our session) with your name and the date on.
HERE ARE THE TOPICS WE'LL BE CHATTING ABOUT DURING OUR SESSION
(WE WILL BE FILLING IN THE 'WILDSCAPING BALANCE SHEET' THROUGHOUT THE SESSION AND YOU'LL BE EMAILED A COPY AFTERWARDS (THE SAME DAY) AND A DATED/SIGNED CERTIFICATE (WITH YOUR NAME ON).
POWERING/FUELLING OUR LIVES & ORGANISATIONS
- What power sources are there for us & our organisations to use?
- What and how can we BEST take from the planet (through a form of energy) to live our lives to the max?
(YOUR INNER OFFICE ENVIRONMENT)
We will be looking into your specific, work place set up (whether you're home based or on a 'work premises') making sure that this session is tailored to what you most want from your work space (how you want it to be set up) and then looking at how to do that in as planet friendly a way as possible...
A. Your organisation's interior environment itself.
B. Let's look at everything that is used to mark out the space, whether you have a home office or a large, office building (desk / furniture / rugs / painting & prints / lights / decorations).
C. We will examine your daily working life (cleaning products & kitchen products / coffee, tea & milk / books / computers & phones & other technology / stationary eg. paper, pens, leaflets, business cards and all other general work & office equipment & products).
D. Your organisation might have a lot of recycling options that you have not considered (and a lot of ways to upcycle your 'rubbish' in ways that also bring you a small profit).
E. We'll chat about First Aid materials and supplies.
EXTERIOR WORK PLACE PREMISES
YOUR OWN ‘WILD EXTERIOR’
Whether your work exterior is owned/rented and is a home window box or a large office or manufacturing estate, during our session we'll look at what you want most from the space for yourself (if you are home based) and for yourself and your work force (if you are an official premises).
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 organisation and local wildlife...
A. What does my organisation really want from this space, to benefit myself/my staff?
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/my organisation 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 (or does my organisation) need to put in place? (Eg. I’d like to have wildlife only use the bottom of my garden/the work estate and I’d like to keep the grass short near the house/offices, for myself/staff to use).
[If you rent an office or work space in a building amongst other tenants - all with their own companies - there are also questions and templates we can go through on how to wildscape your various workplaces together.]
MANAGING YOUR SPACES
We'll put a list together of what contractors you might need to hire.
Eg. A gardener, or a handyman to cut a Hedgehog Highway in your fence or builders to install Bat & Bird Bricks.
MAINTAINING YOUR SPACES
We'll chat about overall tips and hints on maintaining your new spaces, set up to require very little (if any) effort from your organisation.
(If you have any challenges or concerns, Wildscaping Worldwide is also always available to help - FREE - with any ongoing queries).
SETTING UP A 'WILDLIFE FIRST AID OFFICER' IN YOUR WORKPLACE
Wildlife casualties need help urgently when found and it's surprising how many people find a wildlife casualty on the way to work or even on the work place premises itself.
Having a 'WFAO' ensures that you're set up to know exactly how to help a wildlife casualty, minimising any stress (and of course any time that your workplace is disrupted) that yourself & your staff might experience as well as giving you the best chance to save that furry/feathery/spiky life.
You can also make public (through promotional materials on the premises or on social media) about how you're doing all that you can to help your local wildlife: you might be surprised at how much it raises your company profile in the area.
