The Groundswell festival is a catalyst for change in the farming community and we are proud to be a part of the 2022 programme. Returning for the second year, we'll be taking over a beautiful 19th Century timber barn on site to offer communal dinners, creating an installation with our flowers and providing a dinner that’s not just about bringing people together at a long table but honours the relationship between farmer and chef, flowers and food, using some of the best locally sourced produce. 


Expect dishes that are simple and elegant: a focus on letting the ingredients speak for themselves, seasonal and consciously sourced. Dinner will be served on sharing platters to encourage guests to meet and connect, share ideas and inspire others to continue pushing for positive change in our respective communities and industries.


Food & flowers for people & planet.
