We are not just a business, we see ourselves as an umbrella where sustainability projects can incubate and grow. We understand that you cannot split economy, society, and environment, they are an interconnected web with each part relying on the others.
If there is no environment to work in and keep workers healthy then there cannot be an economy, people need economy to support their needs and the economy needs a resilient community in order to function, and without a resilient community we cannot protect the environment. This is why we incorporate the health of the environment, community, and economy into our business model.
Looking after these three aspects of life ensures that Helping Nature Heal, the surrounding communities, and the environment we live in will remain healthy and viable long into the future. At Helping Nature Heal we strive to be socially and ecologically responsible within the company as we combine ecological values and environmental stewardship in a viable business that can provide meaningful employment while paying a living wage to local people which in turn strengthens the local economy and community.
Helping Nature Heal is committed fostering long-term sustainability in everything we do. Our vision, mission, core values, and strategies guide our direction and actions to ensure we are maintaining our commitment to sustainability. Our holistic understanding of sustainability is the root of our commitment to ecological landscape design practices such as no-mow landscapes, Living Shorelines, forest stewardship plans, pollinator gardens, community spaces, therapeutic gardens, edible landscapes and more.
Sustainability also guides our environmentally-friendly business practices such as reducing fossil fuel use, buying locally whenever possible, contributing to community sustainability projects, encouraging staff volunteerism, and sharing knowledge.
Our commitment to sustainability is detailed in our mission, vision, core values and key strategies, which are detailed on our About Us page.
