Today and in celebration of Earth Day, Neverland, the online gardening marketplace, officially launched its virtual in-app festival, Plantchella. Neverland’s Plantchella is an immersive virtual festival, occurring entirely in the Neverland app through April the 24th. In addition, the nature-based startup will be joining the Million Gardens Movement as a 1% charity partner to donate grants to local grassroots organizations that are helping their communities garden and grow food.
Plantchella will feature plant and gardening experts, chefs, and interior designers to showcase the natural beauty of our planet and encourage users to explore their green side by integrating nature in their daily lives. From April 22 – 24, users can browse curated showrooms of indoor and outdoor plant and garden scenes within the app, as well as explore various plant-themed stages, such as the Tropical House Stage and Green Soul Garden Stage.
“Neverland is excited to celebrate our launch with Plantchella, a fun virtual event that will foster and grow our plant community,” said Vera Kutsenko, the CEO and founder of Neverland. “Our goal is to create a hub where passionate plant parents can shop from local stores, learn tips from experts and get inspired to find their green side. We also feel strongly about giving back and are honored to join the Million Gardens Movement as a 1% charity partner.”
Furthermore, Neverland is partnering with local merchants to help attendees furnish their homes with plants and provide giveaways such as a beginner plant bundle and a parent plant pack. The festival will offer participants opportunities to win plants and seeds, as well as the possibility to win $2,000 and an ultra-rare plant.
Attendees must sign up on the Plantchella landing page with their phone number and will receive a text with a link to their e-ticket and app download. The festival will be made possible by its generous sponsors: Ansel & Ivy, Dade Plant Co., Lazy Gardens, The Plant Shanty, Soil & Clay, and Tropifolia.
