Here’s What People From Previous London Foraging Courses Had To Say

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed the morning. I was cursing about having to get up early to trek to the other side of London, but your incredible knowledge and enthusiasm made it very worthwhile. I’ve never been on a course like this before and it has certainly ignited my interest and I’ve been inspired to explore further. Thanks again for giving me such an engaging new interest. – Mick William

It was great. You are very inspiring. My husband said I said hardly anything to him when we went out for a walk yesterday, I was in another world! I really look forward to meeting you and learning from you again. – Emily Mascarenhas

On Saturday I had the most marvellous day with Robin in London. An amazing man, who knows so much about everything wild and nature. Going to enrol for his spring course. – Dorothy Pizzala

Thanks for such a great morning. Learnt such a lot and it brought home to me why I leave all my patch to grow how it wants and not to force anything. It was a very grounding experience reminding me of what I like best. – Linda Tubby

Tasty knowledge and very inspiring! I had a great time on the foraging walk, learnt a lot, and it has opened my mind to the edible possibilities even in cities. – Georgia Frost

I spent a very informative, thoroughly enjoyable few hours being guided through some of the wild plants, formerly known as weeds, of London. I have since been looking at some of the previously unwelcome contents of my garden quite differently. I very much enjoyed Robin’s approach, and found the whole experience both interesting and stimulating. – Rachel Firth

The course was extremely interesting and illustrated the vast amount we do not know about the plants around us, it is one of those subjects you could never come to the end of, like music or computing. It certainly whetted my appetite. Thanks again. – Angela Smith
