The Well-crafted Life
Living in Nature: Willow Crossley, Marian Boswall and James Rich
Living in Nature features three brilliant creatives who are united by their passion for the land. They hail from different disciplines, floristry, garden design and food, but each finds joy in the natural world. Seasonality and sustainability are strong threads of the show, and our lively conversations span from colour and comfort through to tree hugging and meditation spirals.

She has an online course with Create Academy and also produces wonderful instructional Instagram videos. Willow talks to us from her home in Oxfordshire, generously sharing what makes her happy, from treasured possessions through colours that give confidence to a love of walking in the woods.
Landscape architect Marian Boswall runs her eponymous studio, best known for creating stunning gardens in sensitive or historic settings. Her ethos is nature-first, and it is clear from this podcast that she finds joy in surrounding herself with animals, birds, insects and trees. Listen to hear her inspiring and philosophical advice on how to elevate the everyday.
Author James Rich's first book Apple came out in August 2019. The book celebrates James' Somerset heritage and the scope of recipes possible with the fruits of an English orchard. In this podcast, James tells us about his recent move from London to the countryside, enthuses on Aga cooking and shares what is particularly important to him at home.
