How we created an outdoor eco-space

Putting words into action



We've been learning so much about the wider subject of sustainability. We truly believe that switching to 100Green is part of a lifestyle choice - not just an energy choice.

But we are also pragmatists and therefore, if we are going to learn about how we can become more sustainable, then we need to learn about things that are realistic...and that we can implement.

So we decided to start putting our words into action by addressing the unusable outside space behind our grade-2 listed office. We enlisted the help of our local gardening expert, Puckeridge Gardener > who helped us to turn it into a lovely, eco-space for staff to enjoy.
