Landcare Week 2018

Landcare Week takes place from 3-9 September and this year we’re offering your employees the opportunity to get out of the office, get dirty – and get hands on with Landcare!

A series of Landcare Week corporate team events will take place across the country, and we’d love your business to be part of it. Registrations are now open for teams of five or more people, but spaces are limited, please register your team by 27 August.

Getting hands on with Landcare provides your employees with a valuable opportunity to celebrate Landcare Week by making a real difference to the natural environment. It’s also a great chance to network with other businesses and get to know your colleagues outside of the office environment.

What’s included?

Each day will begin with a welcome and safety briefing before your team get stuck into some Landcare activities. We’ll provide both morning tea and a substantial lunch to keep the energy levels up. We’ll also have some fun activities to keep people engaged and each team will go home with a Landcare Week 2018 certificate, and maybe even an award!

A sample schedule of how the day may look is below however, timings will vary by location.
