Demonstrating corporate social responsibility is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must” for businesses. Bringing real rewards for your organisation in terms of public perception and crucially, employee engagement, productivity and retention.
At Oxford City Farm we are proud of the sustained links we have made with local companies and NGOs and are looking to build on this work going forward.
Oxford City Farm runs highly rated team days for companies. These days enable us to tackle really important site development work on the farm whilst providing you and your team with an opportunity to work together outside of the normal office environment and make a really significant contribution to a local
community led charity.
We will work with you and your organisation to tailor a package that suits your group in line with the tasks that are needed on the farm such as building fences, enclosures or signs or supporting with planting, harvesting and weeding jobs around the farm. We have worked with many local organisations including Oxfam, Oxford Brookes University Southern Gas Networks and Grosvenor.
£50 per participant per day (minimum day rate £500). This allows us to cover the cost of the staff who run and organise these days and the use of all equipment as well as helping us raise crucial untied funds to enable us to grow our work with the wider community.
What participants tell us
“very enjoyable and informative”
“facilitated an excellent team building atmosphere”
“the day was fun – hard work, but very rewarding”
“felt engaging and relevant to current climate situation”
Other ways your business could support us
Does your business have access to plant machinery that could help us clear and develop the land? Do you supply fencing or other construction materials which could be donated or provided at reduced cost? Does your business employ skilled staff a day of whose time you could donate to the Farm? We would be grateful for support from a range of different professions including but not limited to carpenters, electricians, plumbers, marketers, administrators, finance officers, planners or designers.
