Creative Countryside

A quarterly magazine, seasonal gatherings and a membership community for wild and wholehearted folk.

For those who strive to live more slowly, who are inspired by the first snowdrop and who walk outside in the rain. For lovers of stories, everyday adventures and local traditions. For those who opt for simplicity, appreciate ancient crafts, and celebrate the seasons.


Issue 4, SUMMER 2018


Somewhere off grid. travelling coast to coast. HARVEST CELEBRATIONS. the twilight hours. light through the leaves. sunflowers of the soul.
