So, you’ve returned to the office. Desks are filling up again. The canteen is buzzing with life and the dust is disappearing from the stationary cupboard.


Ahhh *breathes sigh of relief*… things are slowly returning to normal.


But, what about your team events? 👀


If you’re looking for something new & creative to help reconnect your team and breathe life into your internal events, we can help!


We offer a range of team-building workshops based around the beauty of plants. 

Read on for information on the benefits and process of booking our workshop for your team.

Benefits of our team-building workshops

It’s no secret that plants make us happy. Beyond their aesthetics, they can also have some pretty powerful effects on our mental & physical wellbeing. 

Below are just some of the benefits teams have experienced during our team-building workshops:

A chance to unwind: There’s something about getting your hands dirty and connecting with nature that can bring calm into our day. Your team will have a chance to step away from their daily tasks, switch off and enjoy some much needed zen. 

A chance to connect: It’s been a tough couple of years and for many, it’s also been an isolating & lonely time. Some team members may have not seen each other for quite some time. Our workshops provide a relaxed environment for colleagues to reconnect, share ideas and work together. 

A chance to make something: Our workshops have been described as “rewarding” because not only do you learn about plants but you also have the opportunity to get involved and make something. Whether it’s a terrarium, mini herb garden or kokedama art, every participant will receive the materials needed to design their very own plant creation. 

A chance to have fun: Something we all desperately need after the past two years, right?! If you're tired of the same ol' stale team events, our workshops offer something a little different. They are a creative, relaxed way to connect with colleagues. With so many topics to choose from, there really is something to suit everyone!

Our 5 Most Popular Team-Building Plant Workshops 

Each workshop is designed to connect colleagues, boost team morale & increase employee wellbeing. We provide a fun, relaxed environment for your team to unwind, get creative and connect with the magical world of plants.

Our process 

Whether your team is working from home, in the office or operating within a hybrid model, we can bring the plant fun to you!

Each of our team-building workshops can be delivered online or onsite and are designed to connect colleagues from near or far.

We understand how stressful organising team events can be, which is why we take care of it for you. From kit delivery and set-up to workshop facilitation, we can work with you to create a workshop that fits your team’s needs. 

Our workshops are typically 1 hour long, making it a perfect solution for lunch-time or after work events.

The session kicks off with a bit of background information on the the chosen topic followed by a demo.

We like to keep our workshops fun, informal and interactive. We encourage participants to follow along to the demo, share their creations and ask any questions that they may have throughout the session.

Pricing starts at €250 ex VAT (up to 15 participants). Kits + Delivery are priced separately.
