Our Sounding The Garden philosophy is to:
Live a simpler life.
Live as part of the earth, part of the tides, the natural rhythms, the planets and the elements.
Align the values of the earth with family, community, work and mine.
Live with less.
Make better use of our resources.
Make better use of our time.
“A robin eats worms in the spring, because it needs the protein to lay eggs and raise chicks.
A robin eats fruit in the summer, because food is abundant and carbohydrates are lightweight energy.
And a robin eats seeds and nuts in the fall, to store fats for the long flight south.
In the same way, it is important for people to vary their diet throughout the year to remain healthy.
Eating locally does that.
It keeps you in touch with the cycle of nature wherever you live.”
In our business world, the impact of our operations and actions on our networks, the community and the environment is something we take very seriously.
Feedback from clients, suppliers, associates, alliance partners, employees, shareholders, the community and the environment identifies the voids – the unfulfilled need and this provides the greatest opportunities for change and improvement.
Our quest is never ending as we collect, analyse, research, educate and share our information and ideas as individuals and as a company in the journey of our commitment to manage the impact of our business on the health and safety of our employees, contractors and members of the communities in which we operate and on the environment.
Please join us in this commitment by observing our Push The Earth policy when you do business with us.
Together we can make a difference.
Our clients live and work all over the Earth. Technology enables us to work with Global Communities.
We seek to create a world around us where the mundane returns to the sacred by gardening, nurturing, cooking and self care wellness programs.
The Earth is our Business
In every business we need first and foremost – a cause.
We need to show a profit in order to reinvest back into.
To do this we require an infrastructure, plans, resources, training, systems, feedback mechanisms and someone to manage it all and keep an eye on everything.
We Mean Business
Business begins with our community – our Team, Customers, Suppliers and local Business networks. In our business we observe the Push the Earth Policy and practice creation, implementation and education. This extends to how we manage our work environments and ultimately our team work space with activities like:
