Search, discover, imagine, create, celebrate, plant, grow—join us this year at The Planting.

The Planting is a celebration of cultural expression through music, dance, art and folk lore and the nurturing of our forested parkland. Held at Woodfordia from 4-6 May 2018, The Planting hosts a diverse, informative and inspiring programme intended to contribute to the ever-growing global environmental and consciousness movement.

Come along with friends and family to plant trees, attend workshops, listen to talks and of course enjoy the music!
