Why bring your team to the Farm?
Support your teams with an unforgettable team building day at Melbourne’s most loved Community Farm, just 4 kms from the CBD!
Booking your next Team Experience at the not-for-profit Collingwood Children’s Farm is a wonderful way to increase your organisation’s social impact whilst bolstering your reputation within the community, building cohesive teams and developing staff skills. With so many adjusting to the return to the office after an extended period of remote work, there’s simply no better way to reconnect.
Bringing your team for a day at Collingwood Children’s Farm makes an enormous difference to the community and benefits each participant on a personal level. Our unique, hands-on experiences provide opportunities to grow social connections, develop confidence and new skills and build professional networks, all while earning the deep satisfaction of hands-on community work.
And, of course, it’s fun!
With four decades of experience and a dedicated team highly skilled staff, you can be confident that your teams will leave the Farm energised, motivated and fulfilled and that the impact of your booking will be profound.
Team Experience days with the Farm 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 often dirty. You might be unloading a delivery of hay, helping set up for a fundraising event 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 hands on 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.
