Why bring your team to the farm?
Take time away from the office and enjoy a rewarding day, team building at a community farm, in the heart of Melbourne!
Corporate experiences are a wonderful way for businesses to make a social impact whilst bolstering their reputation within the community, building teams and developing staff skills.
Bringing your team for a day at Collingwood Children’s Farm makes an enormous difference to the community and benefits volunteers personally. It offers the chance to make social connections, develop skills and confidence and develop professional networks, while earning the satisfaction that only a hard day’s work can bring.
And, of course, it’s fun!
Corporate team experience days with CCF are invaluable; you are uniquely placed to tackle large jobs that could otherwise take the Farm weeks or months to complete.
Farm work is physical, outdoors and usually dirty. You might be unloading a delivery of hay, helping set up for our monthly Farmers Market or getting stuck into the gardens. The list of jobs is endless, but we do have the ability to tailor work to suit all abilities, so no one is left out.

In this workshop you will learn about cultivating your own veggie and herb garden and we’ll start you off with a germination kit with a few different herbs and veggies and teach you the best ways to get them to grow into plants you can tend at home and provide food for your table.
In this hands on skilled workshop, you’ll be working with our onsite woodwork team using power tools to build your own garden trug. Using sustainable timber we’ll teach you how to assemble and stain your trug to take home with you.
