Deep Tropics, praised by the New York Times and nominated by DJ Mag in the ‘Best Boutique Festival’ category, is the most sustainable event in the U.S.A.
This renowned music and arts festival announces its new partnership with the R.A.N.C.H. Project (Regenerative Agriculture, Nutrition, and Climate Health), part of leading superfood brand Ancient Nutrition’s dedication to sustainability and regenerative agriculture. This exciting collaboration brings together two organizations committed to environmental stewardship and a shared passion for providing unique and immersive educational experiences to their audiences.
“We are excited to provide our fans the opportunity to visit the R.A.N.C.H. Project’s Center for Regenerative Agriculture this summer to have a hands-on experience of regenerative agriculture. It is so important to reconnect with nature,” said Joel Atchison, co-founder of Deep Tropics.
The Center for Regenerative Agriculture is conveniently located in Summertown, Tenn., less than 60 miles from Nashville. The internationally recognized R.A.N.C.H. Project is at the forefront of sustainable practices. With a commitment to becoming carbon negative, they are actively building topsoil and planting a million superfood-bearing trees, vines, shrubs and plants by the end of 2024.
Additionally, they cultivate a variety of tropical plants like Papaya and Passionfruit in their greenhouses. Many of the R.A.N.C.H. Project’s tropical plants will travel to the Deep Tropics festival, where festival attendees will have the chance to interact with (even taste) the fruits of this collaboration.
The R.A.N.C.H. Project will have an onsite presence at the Deep Tropics. Attendees can visit the R.A.N.C.H. Project booth to learn more about their commitment to sustainability. They will offer Deep Tropics fans the opportunity to sign up for organized field trips to their farm this fall in Deep Culture’s 70 passenger school bus. These field trips will provide a distinct experience for participants, allowing them to witness firsthand the regenerative farming practices employed by the R.A.N.C.H. Project. Participants can reconnect with nature and gain an experiential education in regenerative agriculture, while also contributing to Deep Tropics’ efforts to offset its carbon footprint through tree planting initiatives at the farm.
Entering its fifth year, part of what makes Deep Tropics so unique is their continual success of going beyond net zero by producing a climate positive event for the third year in a row. These efforts are fueled by their non-profit organization Deep Culture, Inc. Deep Culture recognizes the interconnectedness of environmental care, personal well-being, and community engagement, and seeks to foster a transformative vision that promotes self-discovery, stronger community and environmental connections, and interactive experiences for personal and collective growth. Through Deep Culture, Deep Tropics has successfully diverted the majority of festival waste from landfills and offset their carbon footprint through tree-planting initiatives. Their zero-waste program achieved a remarkable 93% waste diversion in 2022.
Deep Tropics promises an exceptional experience with an outstanding lineup and captivating stage designs across three immersive stages: ‘Meru,’ ‘Lotus,’ and ‘Congo Soundsystem.’ Renowned artists like SG Lewis, Gorgon City, LP Giobbi, Major League DJz, What So Not and plenty more are all poised to take the stage.
By combining the vibrant spirit of Deep Tropics with the R.A.N.C.H. Project’s dedication to regenerative agriculture, both organizations are poised to make a lasting impact on the festival’s attendees and the regional, national, and global community.
