Team building with social engagement
A collaborative team experience with social and sustainable engagement: this is Captain Lettuce, our outdoor team activity that challenges teams to plan, build and plan an ecologic vegetable garden in the lands of Sol y Vida, a non-profit association from Barcelona that supports young people with intellectual differences.
Farmers for a day!
After a short transfer from Barcelona’s city centre to Sol y Vida, our staff gave a briefing on basic concepts and techniques of planting, as well as activity phases and guidelines. Once we divided the team of 40 members into smaller groups the challenge was presented: within an hour, teams were given the tasks of planning an allotment and plant organic vegetables on it: delicious lettuces, chards, courgettes, celery, cabbages and beetroots. Afterwards, they also had to build an automatic watering system and create a beautiful scarecrow to keep hungry birds away!
Supported by the workers from Sol y Vida and our staff, each team planned a strategy and shared it with the others, that together build the allotment, the watering system and the scarecrow. Communication, personal engagement, team work and creativity were the key of success for this social team building challenge: the organic garden looked, only after one hour of hard work, fresh and delicious! Thanks for your trust in the Sol y Vida project and in our collective. We hope you can enjoy your organic veggies very soon!
