What we do

Local authorities

A hyperlocal solution to a global environmental challenge.

Connect your diverse communities to your green and blue infrastructure, improving wellbeing, increasing biodiversity and creating natural spaces accessible to all.

Working in partnership with your community and other 3rd sector organisations, we co-create nature-based wellbeing solutions to make your parks, woodlands and waterways more inviting and better used.

Our localised approach enables you to maximise your assets and produce lasting change, ensuring funding is spent wisely and engaging and up-skilling those involved in delivery.

Holy Brook Nook

Our flagship community venture that’s left a sizeable legacy.

By utilising Reading Borough Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) , we transformed a run-down area that had previously been known for crime and persistent drug use and opened up a world of opportunity for residents and the wider environment.

Conservation, a play and learning space, public art, walking programmes, events and a community garden, the list of what we achieved is substantial. We’ve strengthened our existing partnerships and forged new ones. And have successfully engaged local schools and the community to co-create a thriving natural space that everyone is keen to protect.
