Self-paced four-part programme (Immersive Retreat and Live Digital versions available).
Find your unique contribution to environmentalism
– and have fun, play to your strengths, work in alignment with your values and make a big impact in the process.
You care about the environment, but you’re not sure where to start.
And you sometimes wonder how much of a difference one tiny business can make anyway.
Well, the good news is that you can’t solve all the world’s problems, so you can stop trying!
The even better news is that you can actually have more impact by choosing one tiny problem to focus on.
Does this sound like you?
Introducing: The Seed
A four-part programme with options for self-paced (available now), live digital and a live retreat (coming soon) that will help you to:
Hey, I'm Katie Treggiden
You know that sense of fairness that five-year-olds have? Well, that never left me – and I’ve spent my adult life working out how I can use my skills, talents and time to make the world a better place.
It’s taken me a minute, but I have now found my purpose as a journalist, author, podcaster and keynote speaker telling stories about the ways in which craft can save the world, and as the founder and director of Making Design Circular helping craftspeople to do just that.
Over the past 12 years I have developed and honed a methodology for defining and honing the unique contribution that I can make to environmentalism – and now I want to share it with you.
Seth Godin says that “specific is a kind of bravery” and he’s right – doing less to have more impact feels counter intuitive, but trust me – I’ve resigned 75% of my work (twice!) to do just that – and it works.
I want to give you the courage to do the same.

The Seed Live Digital Waitlist
I run a live version of this course annually, which follows the same format, except that it is delivered live over four lunchtimes Monday–Thursday (UK time) via Zoom.
The dates for the next one are still TBC, but you can sign up for the waiting list to be the first to find out when they’re announced:
The Seed Retreat WAITLIST
I am also hoping to run an in-person retreat in Cornwall in early 2024 covering the same content over three days, combined with yoga, swimming, delicious food and time to connect and reflect.
Again, dates are currently TBC, but you can sign up for the waiting list to be the first to find out when they’re announced:

Frequently Asked Questions
Four videos together with workbooks and a Read/Watch/Listen list, which is a bit like the reading lists you might have largely ignored at university or art school, but hopefully more interesting and definitely more inclusive of different learning styles
It is an online self-paced course, but you will be invited to live quarterly Q&As via Zoom where you can bring any questions.
