Earthy Retreat Days
Earthy Retreat Days
Would your team benefit from some time out? We offer retreat days for staff teams. Breathe deep, gain fresh perspective and leave with rejuvenated connections.
When the pressure is on our work becomes outcome focused, our muscles become tense and so do our conversations. In the short term this is fine. But long term it can start to take it’s toll. Sickness increases and morale plummets.
An Earthy Retreat Day at the beautiful PLOT 22 helps you nourish your team’s wellbeing through the simple shared activities of tending the garden, harvesting, preparing and sharing a meal together around a fire.
Optional additional facilitated bush craft/nature connection activities…
PLOT 22 People Care Guidelines:
PLOT 22 is a special place where we can enjoy the simple pleasures of cooking over a fire, growing food, sharing new skills and, at some sessions, allowing children to explore and play. Whilst here we are responsible for the safety of ourselves and each other.
Ensure that you are wearing weather appropriate clothing and footwear.
It is important to arrive at the start of the session as we will be holding an opening circle to welcome and orientate everyone and sharing important safety messages.
Please bear in mind that the site is by its nature hazardous: with open fires, ponds, fungi, insects, occasionally wild animal faeces, over hanging branches and uneven or slippery ground.
When children are here everyone will watch over them but ultimately parents/carers are responsible for them at all times. Young children must be very closely supervised.
First Aid kits are located in the cabin. Fire circle safety, safe use of the woodburner, kettle and seasonal hazards will be explained at the start of each session.
We have a compost toilet on site and provide hand washing facilities.
Please observe careful hygiene when preparing or eating food and help children to do the same.
PLOT 22 is a no alcohol, no smoking, vegetarian site.
Sometimes we allow participants to bring well behaved dogs - please ask. They will need to be kept on a lead during the session.
