We’re delighted to announced that on Saturday 30th April at 1.30pm Jill Butler, Forest of Selwood’s Chair will be part of a panel discussing the importance of regenerative farming in restoring nature to our landscapes at Planted Country’s event at Stourhead. Jill’s panel will be one of six ‘Save our Soil’ talks, bringing together leading thinkers in nature, design and food production. Jill will be in discussion with Derek Gow (Author of Bringing back the Beaver), Tom Carver (Westcombe Dairy) and Ben Raskin (Soil Association).

Planted Country is a free-to-attend event at Stourhead, running across the Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 30th April – Monday 2nd May.

Following the success of Planted’s September launch at King’s Cross in London, Planted Country will bring together design-led businesses, brands and organisations who place nature and sustainability at their core, while working with local environmental and design experts, searching for solutions to the climate and biodiversity crisis.  There will be a wealth of sustainable design on display, high-calibre talks, nature-based workshops and a botannical market.

On Sunday 1 May at 11.30am, Lulu Urquhart, a Director at Forest of Selwood and her business partner Adam Hunt will be discussing whether Gardening can Save the World?  Urquhart and Hunt are also to have a Rewilding Britain Garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show from 24 – 28 May.
