Planting the Rewilded Garden Workshop

What is it

This in-depth workshop reveals the design process behind Knepp’s Rewilded Garden. Discover innovative approaches to habitat creation and learn about the team’s plant selection strategies, including both native and non-native species.

Who is it for

Gardeners of all levels who want to push boundaries and embrace rewilding principles in their planting design will find this workshop particularly valuable. If you’re keen on understanding the ‘why’ behind plant choices and want to explore a more nature-centric approach to garden design, this is an excellent choice.

For a more immersive experience, join one of the Gardens Team on a workshop beginning with a presentation on the design, construction, and planting of our garden experiment. After tea and coffee, you’ll head out to explore the garden first-hand, with plenty of time for questions and brainstorming. Learn about how we’ve been thinking outside the box to create habitats and replicate natural processes; how we choose and source our plants, native and non-native, to build a mosaic of plant communities; how we think about the soil and other planting mediums, as well as sustainability and climate change.

PLEASE NOTE: The garden visits take place next to Knepp Castle in the Middle Block of the rewilding project – a different place to all other safaris. Please do not go to the campsite/safari car park, but follow the directions to the Walled Garden on your pre-visit email.

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
