Corporate team-building days

Core Landscapes offers team-building days helping to for fill your corporate social responsibility (CSR) criteria.

Our out-of-the-office away days can cover a range of activities depending on the season and what needs doing in the gardens, but whatever time of year they are always:

  • Fun and rewarding
  • Bespoke
  • Well-organised
  • Fully supported

We cater for small or large groups and aim to create a bespoke day based on your specific requirements. Activities can include challenging physical work or gentler more focused tasks, depending on the needs of the people taking part, all coordinated by enthusiastic and friendly staff.
Training is given on the day and volunteers’ ideas and skill sets are utilised wherever possible.

Past projects include creating a green roof, constructing seats and window boxes, designing and planting up containers and bug hotels, and building ponds. The aim is for people to feel rewarded by what they can achieve together in a day and clearly see the difference their help has made.

Currently Core Landscapes is settling into new spaces in Hackney having relocated from Whitechapel earlier this year so there are plenty of creative tasks to get involved with developing our new roof garden hub and landscaping Core Arts’ garden.

Corporate feedback is unanimously positive from a wide variety of companies. People particularly enjoy learning new skills in beautiful outdoor spaces, the teamwork challenges, the mental respite from an office environment and knowing they are helping to support a project with a large impact in the local community and beyond.

By engaging in our innovative multi award-winning project you are developing pocket garden spaces in Hackney for community wellbeing that help people recover from and manage mental ill health.
