Corporate Volunteering

Corporate Volunteering at LWCF enables your organisation to contribute positively to the community and gives your workforce the opportunity to gain valuable skills, experiences and undertake team development. We work closely with your organisation to meet your specific requirements. Our Volunteer Coordinator project manages the whole process from initial conversations and ideas, sourcing and ordering materials, Health and Safety considerations including inductions and Risk Assessments and the actual facilitation of the event. We frequently work with groups of between 5 -100+ people.

We can offer a range of tasks from building fences, painting, decorating, gardening bramble clearance, building raised beds, building new features - the list changes so please ask! We can also set up challenges that inspire and galvanise groups, helping them to develop team work and leadership skills - directly benefiting your organisation and productivity.

With indoor facilities for lunch and refreshments, on-site parking and an easily accessible situation close to the M4/M5 J17/18 we are popular and ideal choice for many Bristol and nationwide companies. Many organisations have developed an ongoing relationship with the community farm in which they return each year.

"I honestly felt proud at the end of the day, seeing that we had created something that would actually help the farm and being shown excellent, new skills, by people who are so passionate about what they do. I will certainly recommending the farm to others." Burges Salmon employee

We charge £25 per head (minimum £200), for a corporate day; this cost covers materials, staffing and facilitation costs, excluding your transport to and from the farm and your lunches. Please ask about potential catering. We do have local shops within a 5 minute walk. Your own catering firms can also be used.

Additional donations are always gratefully received.
