In 2005, Nico organised the special event, ‘the Corn Field’. The vision behind the event was the inclusion of agricultural crops in gardens and landscape design. The event combined nature, art, cooking, music and culture, in a cornfield close to his home.

The format of the event included mown areas and paths in the cornfield, where visitors were invited to discover the chairs and hammocks laid out for them, as well as a fire pit and works of visual art. Special features included a seven metre-high female figure carved from wood, entitled ‘the Wanderer’, and a specially built treehouse. Visitors could enjoy the natural elements, in completely stress-free surroundings.
