What is our scope of services?

Ready to Apply?


To present your project for consideration, we require that you complete an online questionnaire. Note that this link will take you outside of the Nature Sacred website to a Google form. Though the form will automatically save your progress, we still recommend that you compile and polish your answers in a separate document before filling out the questionnaire. To aid with your preparation, we have included a downloadable PDF of the questionnaire. We have also devised a scoring rubric to detail how we will evaluate submissions.

Preparing your responses and completing the questionnaire should take 30-45 minutes. 

 

Evaluation criteria:

  • Affiliated Organization has specific site, goals, and direction determined
  • Site adheres to Nature Sacred’s guiding principles 
  • Affiliated Organization has capacity to provide or raise a minimum of $30,000 in construction dollars
  • Affiliated Organization has capacity to oversee and project manage construction process

Please note that throughout the selection process, Nature Sacred may request additional information about the proposed site, including but not limited to virtual meetings, site visits, and 1-2 minute walkthrough videos of the site.

Preview the questionnaire here. 

Please review this document thoroughly before you apply, as it contains an overview of Nature Sacred as well as important links and definitions of terms used in the questionnaire. 

Apply now.

We’re looking forward to learning what you have in mind!

 

Have questions?

We will hold one live Q&A Session to share some insights into past projects and to field your questions about working with us. If you have questions, please submit them in advance here. The session will be recorded and available for later reference.
