What is GROW your Nature Business?

ABOUT THIS PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMMUNITY:
GROW stands for Gatherings for Reflection, Observation, and shared Wisdom…. for Nature entrepreneurs, creators, movers and shakers.
This is an online Professional Learning Community for those who run businesses and organizations that are connected with or inspired by the natural world. This could be a school, recreation program, wellness practitioner, and so much more! People from diverse backgrounds are welcome.

It will include four live 2 hour group calls so we may connect with others who do (or want to do) business differently, ask each other questions, share resources, and be reassured there are others out there doing great things!

Community members can also choose to access to a private online community platform to continue to support one another in between calls and afterwards.

"Grow has been an amazing tool for us to find other like-minded forest school folks and discuss really enriching topics! All of the common questions we all have when starting or growing a forest school could be discussed with others and we truly found it to be a valuable experience. Grow allowed us to take some of the pressures off of figuring out the "ins and outs" of starting a forest school and it was truly rewarding to talk to others about solutions and creative ideas with running a successful program. THANK YOU Caylin!"

Business as Nature Connection - Mentorship Package

We need a different way of living that centres the health of our communities in all that we do. Join me in this brave and challenging task to re-imagine the business world!

Why help each other GROW?

As an educator, I’ve personally found it intimidating at first to navigate the business world as these skills are not often included in our training or other professional learning programs. I’ve also found it hard to translate what I wish to create to the language and values of business which often prioritizes money making over community building…

I’ve spent the past several years developing my own methods and models to do this work in a business-minded world, whilst holding on to the values and teachings that are rooted in the natural world. I also know there are many others who have been doing the same.

In this Online Professional Learning Community, we'll gather together to support each other at this critical time in our lives (and history!) where there is a drive and opportunity to work on redesigning our systems. 

This is for nature entrepreneurs, creators, movers and shakers to meet (virtually by Zoom) and share information and resources with each other.
