In a world reshaped by the challenges of a post COVID-19 landscape, where digital screens and remote administrative and support services have become the norm, Warrah unveiled an innovative program known as Gumboot Day. While the message is straightforward “it’s time to step out of the office and into your boots”, this initiative is not merely about getting one’s feet dirty. It’s a compelling invitation to embrace the profound health and social benefits inherent in farm activities.
With a steadfast commitment to the mental health and well-being of our staff, Gumboot Day encourages those who typically work within office confines to step out of their daily routines and immerse themselves in the farm environment. This program offers staff members a unique opportunity to participate in a variety of farm activities, fostering teamwork and establishing a deeper connection with the roots of our responsibly farmed food products.
The dedication and hard work of our farm team have yielded remarkable results, making Gumboot Day a highly anticipated monthly event. Such resounding popularity prompted us to extend the invitation to our corporate partners, who enthusiastically embraced the initiative. This expansion not only magnified the event’s success but also forged stronger connections with our invaluable business partners. Gumboot Day has become a unifying force, allowing office-based staff to step out of the office and into their boots, fostering an enriched perspective and renewed vitality.
