Hawkhill House Nursing Home – Allotment Teambuilding Challenge

We received an wonderful good news story from Hawkhill House Nursing Home in Aberdeen. Have a read and a look at the pictures below.

Our team has embarked on a team-building event called the Allotment Challenge” which kicked off on 13th April 2024. We all gathered at Hawkhill House to prepare our allotments, followed by a mouthwatering BBQ.

This event was inspired by our dedication to grow our own soft fruits and vegetables while promoting sustainability and reducing carbon footprint.

We divided into three teams, each led by passionate staff committed to the objective and fostering teamwork: Joanna, Anna, and Lovell lead teams of staff members and families, all working together to achieve the best results.

Our challenge culminates in September, where the winning team will be determined based on points accumulated through meeting the following criteria:

  • Quantity of harvested produce
  • Variety of produce grown
  • Largest produce
  • Longest produce
  • Heaviest produce
  • Creativity and innovation in gardening techniques
  • Sustainability – implementation of sustainable practices
  • Best presentation of the final harvest

We will also choose the Best Team Player & Sportsmanship Award based on the most cooperative and good sports among teams.

Prizes will include vouchers, trophies, and gift items from sponsors.

This event not only encapsulates the essence of teamwork but also the satisfaction of striving toward a shared goal.

It underscores the importance of collaboration, creativity, and sustainability, demonstrating how staff can unite to make a positive impact on our environment.

We can’t wait to see the harvest in September,  celebrate the beauty of nature, the fruits of our labour and the joy of sharing with others!
