Contributes to employee wellbeing
WHY BRING URBAN FARMING TO THE WORKPLACE?
The workplace is changing. Employers have to offer more than financial perks in order to attract, motivate and retain top talent. Employees expect their employer to have their wellbeing in mind, whilst they have increasingly high expectations of their commitment to the local community and the environment. The same expectations are increasingly true from shareholders, community groups and government stakeholders.
Urban Farming has been shown to remedy issues that affect the wellbeing of urban populations, such as air pollution, poor diet, physical inactivity, depression and anxiety. Its introduction to the workplace offers the opportunity for businesses to reimagine the working environment and offer a wellbeing service with a difference to their employees whilst demonstrating their sustainability credentials.
FARM DESIGN & INSTALLATION
We install farms and other productive green spaces in or around the workplace. These range from edible living walls to hydroponic towers in the workspace. They contribute to the quality of the working environment, offer employee engagement, and produce fresh, nutritious produce for your employees or canteen, whilst demonstrating your commitment to sustainability.
As well as installing the ‘farms’ we also offer a managed service, whereby we maintain, harvest and distribute the produce of your farm.
FARM SERVICING & COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT
Not only do we maintain the farm, ensuring it is always stocked with fresh, healthy produce, but we also create a workplace community around it. We involve your employees in activities such as planting and harvesting and we encourage them to take home the fresh produce.
Away from the farm, we influence workplace culture by providing a platform for engagement and education, centred on healthy, sustainable living, whether that be tips on how to grow-your-own at home, or workshops in preparing healthy meals.
We offer workshops and seminars, as well as supper clubs based around the theme of healthy, sustainable living. All centred around the farm and its produce.
We also offer nutritional consultations and grow-at-home kits to enable your employees to take the farm home with them!
