Corporate Activities

A challenge day with us…

…is an excellent way to engage with the local community and provides great team-building and development opportunities for corporate groups. Your employees will apply their skills in a different context; interact with colleagues in the relaxed setting of our unique urban oasis and help the community to grow and blossom.

All activities are practical, outdoors, hands on and suitable for everyone: an example of a challenge might be:


  • Creating an accessible, sensory garden for people with disabilities to enjoy
  • Developing our messy play area to get local children off their screens and into the wild
  • Installing a water harvesting system as part of our commitment to long term sustainability
  • Planting an edible garden to provide organic produce for the community.

The team day went brilliantly thank you. We had a great day, probably the hardest we’ve worked in years!

Getting out of the office and working outside for the day with the staff at HCGC was great fun and really good for general wellbeing, figuring out how to move the water collection tank from one part of the site to the other got our brains working and clearing the ground and laying bricks for the base got our muscles warmed up and our blood pumping!  A very satisfying day for all of us and we’re looking forward to the next challenge that we can get our teeth into in our ongoing relationship with HCGC.
