‘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:
Day with the animals: mucking out, grooming and training. £450 for up to 10 people
Building raised beds at ‘Urban Farmer’ sites: We’re training long-term unemployed people to use neglected pieces of land for food production. They will help to lead the task: the raised beds will be the first step in developing the sites. £1000 for two raised beds for up to 20 people
