The Planting is an annual three-day cultural event in Queensland, Australia. It is a festival celebrating innovation in the arts, humanities and earth sciences. The Planting started out as community tree planting weekend some 22 years ago, where volunteers took part in regenerating the festival’s five-hundred-acre home, Woodfordia. By day they planted, by night they partied. Since then, The Planting has evolved into a multi-layer festival of talks, forums, workshops, music, food and films, ceremony, and environmental projects; a weekend of community spirit, cultural and intellectual exchange. The 2017 Planting Festival programme – held over the Queensland Labour Day long weekend – features over 200 artists and presenters, over 200 shows, across 25 venues, which all combine to make up The Festival Village.
