‘A fab day.’ ’Good to get out of the office and bond with the team.’
Our corporate volunteer days get people out of the office for fun and meaningful activities to develop team work, problem-solving and communication skills.
Physical tasks encourage motivation, boost staff morale and give a huge sense of achievement. Participants also get to burn calories, enhance wellbeing and know they’re contributing to an important community resource.
Join our many partner organisations who provide people and funds to allow us to keep the Farm doors open for free for the local community.
Our unique team-building days suit organisations of all sizes to help deliver your corporate social responsibility needs. We focus on urgent, seasonal tasks and projects.
Because we appreciate the time and enthusiasm that your staff and colleagues bring, we keep our costs down to the minumum necessary for vital staff supervision, administration and overheads, health and safety requirements and any materials needed for the project you choose.
Volunteers could expect, for example:
Planting a section of our sensory nature trail: Install low planting beds around our perimeter fence and plant with lovely herbs and wildflowers; this trail particularly concentrates on plants that appeal to different senses, so that those with sensory impairment can enjoy smelling, touching and looking at wonderful plants that benefit our important wildlife too. £500 for up to 20 people.
Installing a section of accessible pathway: Making our main growing field easier for buggies and wheelchairs to navigate around in all weathers, so everyone can admire the vegetables, forest garden and wildlife pond. £800 for up to 20 people.

09:30 – Arrive, tea and coffee

Catering can also be arranged by our Café; Stepney City Farm Café cooks simple fresh food from local producers to provide nourishing meals for your hungry volunteers.
