If you and your team at work are looking for a team building day with a difference, you’ve found it! Come and develop your professional relationships and skills, whilst supporting a valuable community resource, and while chickens and geese run freely around your feet. All days include special animal encounters, so you get to know the animals themselves as well as the farm.
At Kentish Town City Farm, we can offer you a fun-filled day catered to your needs that is both beneficial to you and your colleagues and us at the farm. There is always a variety of interesting tasks for people of all abilities, outdoors or indoors, all guaranteed to give you something to brag about back at the office!
What we do:
KTCF is a unique charity that helps people connect with animals, nature and the environment. We offer educational, therapeutic and creative opportunities to children, adults with special needs, and anyone who is stressed by city living. See our You Tube video to find out more about the farm and what we do. It’s produced by the City of London Corporation’s charity City Bridge Trust, which funds our busy school educational programmes.
A typical day volunteering would look something like this:
10:00 Meet on the yard for an introduction, health and safety brief and tour of our farm.
10:30 Split into small groups and get stuck in! Feel free to get to know our volunteers, they’re some of the friendliest people you’ll meet!
12:00 – 13:00 Lunch time! We don’t include lunch, but if you want something arranged then we can introduce you to an excellent local caterer. Alternatively, there are some great cafes locally. If you’re lucky one of our volunteers might have some fresh fruit and vegetables for you to try straight from the gardens.
13:00 Time to get back to work! There is a chance to swap tasks but often people choose to see theirs through to the end, for that feeling of a job well done and completed!
15:00 Tools down and time for some “hands on” time with our animals. If you’ve never groomed a goat, stroked a pig’s belly, or fed a cow, well then it’s about time you did! This is most of our volunteer’s favourite part of the day!
16:00 End of the day! Time to go home, or if you would prefer to move on as a team we can recommend some great local watering holes!
*We also do half-day volunteering, which usually runs from 9am to 12pm, and is mainly based around animal/farm work and gardening.
A full day is £45 per head, with a £600 minimum.
A half day is £25 per head, with a £350 minimum.
This fee goes towards covering the cost of running these days, and also contributes to the everyday running of the farm for the benefit of the local community.
If your team of colleagues are looking to make a difference at a community project, we’d love to hear from you.
Get in touch to ask about potential projects, the team day and half-day schedules, fee rates and booking.
