Green Team Building: Unlocking Creativity and Growth with Plant-Themed Workshops

In a world where work can sometimes feel like endless back-to-back meetings and a never-ending to-do list, taking a moment to breathe, connect, and grow together as a team is so important. And what better way to do that than surrounded by the natural beauty and tranquility of plants? 

We have hosted team-building workshops for businesses across Ireland for over 10 years. And we’ve learned that plants have the power to transform workplaces into happier, healthier environments and teams into more productive and engaged employees. 


Team Building: Beyond the fun 

Let’s start with the why. Team building isn’t just a buzzword or a tick-box exercise; it’s a crucial ingredient in the recipe for a successful business. Studies show that effective team building leads to improved communication, increased productivity, and higher job satisfaction. In fact, according to the American Psychological Association, companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20%. That’s a big deal, right? And it doesn’t stop there. Team building has been linked to a whopping 50% boost in communication, making it easier for everyone to get on the same page. This means happier teams, better work, and a more vibrant workplace culture.


Getting creative with plants

Now, why plants? Picture this: your team, hands in soil, laughing and learning together as they create their own mini-gardens or terrariums. There’s something magical about working with plants. It’s not just about the act of gardening itself but about the creativity it unlocks. Plants challenge us to consider the future - how will this plant grow? What environment does it need to thrive? These questions mirror the forward-thinking and problem-solving skills valuable in any business context. Plus, tapping into creativity can lead to innovative ideas and solutions back in the office.


The indoor plant phenomenon

Bringing plants into the workplace isn’t just aesthetically pleasing; it’s backed by science to improve air quality, reduce stress, and enhance productivity. Research by NASA has highlighted the ability of indoor plants to purify air, while studies in environmental psychology show that plants in the office can boost productivity by up to 15%. Not to mention, the presence of plants can significantly reduce workplace stress and promote wellbeing. So, when your team gets hands-on with plants, they’re not just having fun; they’re learning to create a healthier, more vibrant workspace. It’s like nature’s way of pressing the reset button. 

Happy teams grow together

The real magic happens when you see the transformation in your workspace and your team. Engaging in plant-based team-building activities is more than learning how to care for a plant. It’s about nurturing a sense of accomplishment, collaboration, and, yes, sparking joy. Teams that laugh and grow together (literally, in this case) are the ones that stand the test of time and challenges. 

Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect from our team-building workshops

- Boosted creativity and innovation: There’s something about working with plants that gets the creative juices flowing. It’s a chance for your team to think differently and bring new ideas to life.

- Enhanced office environment: The plants your team works with will serve as mementos of a great day and contribute to a healthier, more vibrant office space.

- Strengthened team bonds: Shared experiences, especially unique ones like these, are incredibly effective at building strong, lasting connections between team members.

- Improved wellbeing: It’s not just about the physical benefits of cleaner air. The sense of achievement and the act of caring for a living thing can significantly boost mental health.
