Why bring your team to the Farm?
To get back together!
COVID 19 drove us all apart, so use this as an opportunity to reconnect with your team and get outdoors. Take time away from the office and enjoy a rewarding day 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.
And, of course, it’s fun!
By choosing the Farm for your corporate experience, you will be supporting a non-profit organisation which engages with people in the community who are experiencing adversity. Your financial contribution will help us care for our animals, conserve our heritage farmland, and fund inclusive programs which develop self-esteem, self-worth and connectedness. It is an opportunity for your business to show you truly value your community and want to contribute to its flourishing.
Learning about and addressing environmental problems and the impacts of climate change start at a young age. By supporting CCF you will be aligning yourself with an organisation that educates the next generation about how we can live more sustainably and contribute to the fight against climate change.
Raising capital will allow Collingwood Children’s Farm to broaden what it has to offer and further invest in capital works that will make the Farm a core green space in the heart of the city. By booking your Corporate Experience session, you will be playing a key role in the ongoing sustainability of Collingwood Children’s Farm’s programs and investing in the future of an organisation that seeks to address issues, such as climate change and building community for those facing adversity.
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.
