Plant Tribe book launch at Maison Palme in Berlin

Plant Tribe book launch event at Maison Palme in Berlin

Because all the Plant Tribe book events that we planned for the official booklaunch in March were postponed, we were very excited that we managed to organize a small Covid-proof event in Berlin for the launch of the German edition of the Plant Tribe book. Only two days before new hygiene measures were announced for Germany, we had a very intimate event in several small groups at the beautiful Maison Palmė. The location in the heart of Wedding Berlin was an obvious choice: it’s the studio and event space of Jules Villbrandt, our friend and photographer that did all the photography for the Plant Tribe book, and her team Maria and Wilkin from Herz&Blut.

Last year, we traveled with Jules to the 17 homes that are featured in the book and somehow this was the first time we were reunited again, which was lovely despite the crazy circumstances:

For these unique plant spheres they were inspired by the Good Energy with Plants chapter in the book and integrated quartz and aragonite in the design for good energy for your plants.

Each plant sphere has a perfectly designed drainage hole on the bottom as well as a small dripping tray. They are easy to plant (18cm diameter and 2 liters soil capacity) and because every piece is handmade, they’re a unique piece of art for your home.

They provided five pieces of art to add a gallery vibe to our book launch. After all we think that plants and art are a fabulous combination. Check out their amazing selection of limited edition art pieces here.

After mingling and nibbles, we had a little talk about the book, we chatted with Jules about our big trip to all of the 17 homes in the US, Brazil and around Europe and answered questions from all the lovely people that joined us for the event. Because the groups were so small and the event space so cozy: it were pretty intimate talks and we revealed quite a bit about the process of creating a book, how we worked with our publishers and how it was to visit so many plant lovers in all these different places.

New Book: Plant Tribe – Living Happily Ever After with Plants

The word is out: We are happy to announce our brand new book “PLANT TRIBE – Living happily ever after with Plants”. Our new book PLANT TRIBE hit the stores on March 17th, 2020. With PLANT TRIBE we invited the global tribe of plant loving people into our 240-pages book. We traveled through the US, Brazil and Europe to bring inspiring people and their emotional and personal plant stories to all of you.

With PLANT TRIBE we are going one step further: After our first book Urban Jungle, we are now delving deeper into the many ways that nurturing plants help nurture the soul, with inspiring advice for using plants to increase energy, creativity, and well-being, and to attract love and prosperity into the home.

Additionally, we have a closer look on living with pets and plants, both of whom we love dearly.
