Hi there, I’m Robin Harford, bestselling author of Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland and a BBC Countryfile recommended foraging teacher.
The Special Plant Project is the result of teaching foraging full-time for over fifteen years. As well as writing and publishing many books on wild plants.
Imagine you’re out on a walk and spot a plant. You sit down next to it and open the Special Plant Project app. Then watch or listen to me personally teach you.
It’s like having me right by your side as your personal plant guide.
This teaching style, using video and audio, is an immersive experience. It’s as close to an in-person private foraging course as you can get.
You get notified on the app or by email when I publish a new lesson. The app works on either iPhone or Android.
The delivery of the lessons is designed for people on the go, so you can avoid being stuck at your desktop computer or tethered to a laptop.
The benefit of sitting with a plant is that you can see where it’s growing. You can see what other plants are growing in the same habitat.
You’re able to feel and sense the environment where it grows. You can look, touch, smell and feel the plant.
It is an immersive experience and a fun way to learn that is dynamic, fluid and flexible to your lifestyle.
Another benefit of joining The Special Plant Project is the community discussions and monthly Q&A Zoom gatherings.
These happen at least once a month between March and November. If you cannot attend, that’s fine, as the sessions are recorded.
You can ask any questions, as I’m here to help you become a safe, confident and knowledgeable forager.
The Special Plant Project will open its doors at the beginning of March 2023. Just in time for the arrival of Spring.
