What we do

Sustainability research

Design research

Workshops & seminars

Fallow Earth is a London-based, interdisciplinary research and design studio that aims to bridge the gap between the environmental and creative sectors.

We believe that transitioning towards a more sustainable society requires an understanding of both science and art. We must inform and inspire in equal measure to overcome the inertia of climate-denialism and climate-doomism.

Using our combined understandings of agri-environmental science, social science and design research, we help clients understand the choices they can make today in pursuit of more livable tomorrows.
