About Church Farm Ardelely CicWe are a not-for-profit farming, food, care and education farm. Our aim is to enhance the countryside, provide people with special needs the opportunity to learn and grow, conserve wildlife and farm ecologically. Rural care & education programmes are at the heart of everything we do here at Church Farm, providing training and work experience for people with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues in a supportive and caring environment on a fully working farm.
We offer educational trips, internships and programmes to local schools and colleges and also work in partnership with North Hertfordshire College to provide accredited training for their students with learning disabilities on the farm.
We are able to cater to single volunteers, small groups through to large corporate events. Increasingly, we have seen companies opting to do something ‘real’ for building their teams. A 2017 study found that a company’s CSR strategy is a big factor in where
today’s top talent chooses to work. Often this is referred to as the triple bottom
line: People, Planet, and Revenue. Companies are encouraged to put that increased
profit into programmes that give back.
Events at the farm are ideal for groups who prefer to do something real on Team Building & Away Days, who want a fulfilling learning programme as well as practical experience. Church Farm Ardeley & Aldenham Country Park are particularly suited to organisations and events that are about sustainability and to those that take seriously
the impact enterprise can have on people and the environment. Events can range from half day seminars to programmes over several days.
Team-building opportunities – such programmes can help build bonds, strengthen communication skills and boost morale while making a positive difference in the lives of people who need it most. Above all, participating in CSR team building programs are
both fun and fulfilling.
