If you have noted our letter head you know we are very proud of our EcoHort certification. We are careful not to claim to be 'organic' but EcoHort has helped us develop practices to minimise our impact on our environment. With time and care I would like to work towards NASAA but I don't want to lose many of the benefits that come with modern horticulture like consistent quality and reliable results for our consumers. Yeah, and I'm just that bit conservative so we'll go slowly.
Key thing to come from our EcoHort audit is we need a written environment policy. So here goes...
Scotsburn Nurseries Environment Policy
There you go... I got worried once I started about where this would take me but keep it short and to the point works for me. I'd love some feedback, please let me know what you think. I've still got to work on some of the specific 'practice' documents, specifically a waste management plan. I might bore you with this another time.
I've been looking for a good excuse to use these terrific pics from Upwey Primary School. I think the link to our Environment policy is pretty obvious.
