At Help2Grow we are committed to making our neighbourhood and our world a healthier place.

So we’ve started a local social movement called Cromwellness and we’ll fund it to get started.  Cromwellness is all about making our home town Cromwell a healthier place to live and to do business.  We are just getting started.

Bead and Proceed partnership

Bead & Proceed Partnership – Help2Grow helping Kiwis to be the change in the world

H2G is pleased to have a new, informal partnership with Bead & Proceed.

We raise awareness of their service and they, in turn, raise awareness of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  In this way, H2G is making a difference in the world.

Bead & Proceed is educating Aotearoa and beyond on the SDGs inspiring action towards them through creativity. From workshops to on-going consulting services to innovative activations, Bead & Proceed is inspiring behavioral change in the public and private sector, supporting organisations to align to the SDGs and targets and take all staff on that SDG journey, actioning the goals to better themselves and the world we live in.

Bridget Williams is the founder and CEO of Bead & Proceed and her passion for sustainability and using creativity as a tool for innovation has made her a recognised SDGs expert. Bridget is a 2021 semi-finalist in the Impact Awards.

Close to home, we’ve been working from home for much of our lives.  Most recently, home is our 10 acre property at Tarras in Central Otago.

It’s becoming a healthy sustainable environment, home for many creatures beyond the human family who live here.

We are creating a special place with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in mind.  We aim to transform our small part of the world and hopefully encourage others to follow …

  • Growing food organically – fruit, vegetables, nuts for us – and growing many food environments for birds and insects
  • Clean food, water and environment, including bio-friendly waste management
  • Planting trees and shrubs – we’ve already planted thousands of natives and other trees – attracting birds, insects and bees
  • Solar power – for our home and offices, and to power our e-vehicle (Kona Hyundai) which we use to travel around the South Island

Everything is designed to create a healthy environment which enables us and those who visit us to flourish.
