Corporate workshops from My Food Garden with a theme of organic gardening and urban agriculture. These corporate workshops aim to:
- Be a catalyst for a more resilient and environmentally conscious workplace and wider community
- Promote holistic health and well being: social and emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual and mental
- Build community with your staff around a healthy pursuit that aids work-life balance.
Our workshops can be held in your office or in locations where more hands-on organic gardening activities can be undertaken. Workshop options are as follows:
- Lunch time in your office – One hour workshop to engage and inform your staff and most importantly to open their awareness to the benefits of growing their own food. This workshop would combine a slide presentation, group activity and facilitated conversation. Workshop titles are: How to grow food in small spaces, Build community with your food garden, Using your food garden for mindfulness, How to establish an office food garden, Why grow food in cities – the urban agriculture opportunity. Content of these workshops can be tailored to your HR and sustainability focus. The one hour workshop is $550 plus travel costs, if out of Brisbane.
- Hands-on workshops – These range from 2 hours up to 2 days and are focused on building up your organic food growing knowledge. Most of these workshops are held at our beautiful property in Brisbane and prices per person are shown on our 2017 workshop program here. Where a workshop is specifically designed for your staff, customers or stakeholders, a quotation would be provided based on the specific focus and number of participants. We are able to run workshops in your existing office food garden and in selected food gardens in major cities around Australia.
Other services we provide that are aligned to the workshops:
- Mentoring – Once your office food garden is established, we provide mentoring of your food garden group to ensure they achieve results and stay engaged
- Consulting – Ranging from supporting the design of food growing spaces in your workplace, to planning sustainable urban agriculture into communities and large developments.
