Free event has extensive programme of talks and workshops
A NINE-part talks programme titled “Save our Soil”, presented by biophilic design expert Oliver Heath and former Sunday Times journalist Sam Peters, will explore why the earth matters for food, farming and nature.
The programme takes place at the Planted Country event being held in partnership with the National Trust. The free-to-attend event will be held at Stourhead, running across the Bank Holiday weekend April 30th to May 2nd.
The entire talks programme, details of which can be found at www.planted-community.co.uk, will be filmed from Planted’s mobile off grid cabin close to the main house at Stourhead and feature speakers from organisations including the National Trust, Soil Association, Heal Rewild and the Forest of Selwood group.
With subjects ranging from regenerative farming to healthy eating and designing spaces for nature, confirmed speakers include the National Trust’s head of trees John Deakin, “Bringing back the Beaver” author Derek Gow, “Divide” author and BBC Countryfile reporter Anna Jones, Seedlip founder Ben Branson and Bill Amberg from Bill Amberg Studio.
All talks and workshops are free to attend on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
