Planted Country

Planted is the first sustainable events and media platform promoting nature-based design.

Planted was founded with the purpose of reconnecting people and spaces with nature. The Planted community presents a more sustainable vision of the future by showcasing beautiful design today which improves our tomorrow; they seek to present positive design solutions to environmental challenges and are committed to effecting positive and lasting change.

In September 2021, during the global pandemic, they successfully hosted their flagship launch event at King’s Cross. Close to 6,000 people attended the event with 4,500 registered visitors walking through the Natural Living carbon neutral marquee, where more than 50 sustainable design brands were on show.

As their events programme develops, they are venturing closer to their home Wiltshire home (just down the road from our own studio and workshop) and spring 2022 see the first Planted Country event taking place…

Planted Country

Planted Country 2022Based around the principles of biophilic design, exploring the health and creative benefits of connecting with nature, Planted Country will take place from 30 April to 2 May 2022.

Presenting sustainable design, a high-calibre talks programme, nature-based workshops and a botanical market, Planted Country will bring together design-led businesses, brands and organisations who place nature and sustainability at their core.

Save our soil

With growing awareness of the need to protect land for future generations and the role it can play in mitigating climate risk, Planted Country’s six-part talks programme will explore why land matters for food, farming and nature.

The “Save Our Soil” talks programme will bring together leading thinkers in nature, design and food production covering topics from regenerative farming and why local design matters to considering how gardening can play a vital role in our bid to get to net zero.

Verve Festival

Verve Festival at Planted Country will advocate the ethos that true wellbeing goes beyond looking after ourselves: it includes how we take care of the people and natural world around us.

A variety of speakers including nutritionists, yoga and Qi Gong instructors and wellbeing consultants will come together to deliver a varied programme of workshops over three days focused on the development of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, all rooted in the natural world.

Sustainable design & the beauty of botanicals

A carefully handpicked selection of items from proponents of sustainability in design and architecture brought together to exhibit and celebrate ‘Natural Living‘ will be on show.

Alongside this, the Botanical Market will showcase the beauty of botanicals with everything from uplifting fragrances for the home, bath, and body, contemporary ceramic art and pop-up pizza to fine single estate teas, artisanal honey spirits and pure new wool blankets.
