From Tree to Table… the movie

Today was special for lots of reasons.

It was the first day of Grown in Britain Week… that’s special in and of itself.

I ‘got out’ of the office. That’s special. Because it’s rare. I say I’ll do it… and then I don’t. I end up staying close to the wood… and the woods. But today I got out.

To Heal’s. For the launch of Cranborne, an English Ash furniture range by Benchmark in collaboration with Grown in Britain, Will Hobhouse & his team of visionaries at Heal’s. Also very special.

And the culmination of all the specialness… the Grown in Britain movie  telling the story of a tree and a table and all the people in-between.

Isn’t this what it’s all about wood fans?
