Here’s What People Have Said About Previously

Robin’s wild edible plants’ course was amazing, I urge anyone interested in foraging to do one before he stops doing them. With so many edible plants to choose from his ‘mindset’ approach is a flash of brilliance! – Antony Christie BA (Hons), MSc?

I went into the day knowing very little about edible plants, but your sheer enthusiasm and boundless knowledge quickly had me hooked! I felt that I learned so much from you. Not only about what you can and can’t do with the plants that are on our doorsteps, but also about getting back to trusting my instincts and listening to myself more. Thanks so much for a fantastic day and really helping to open my eyes to trust my instincts again. It’s a real shame that you are slowing down on the teaching. So many people could learn so much from you. – Lyndsey Mizen

I got an enthusiasm, accessibility and connection with the plant kingdom I’ve never had before, even having spent decades of my life in green Sussex. I loved all the stories, the attitude and your humanity too. – Clive Ardagh

I think that the links you drew between the smells and tastes of the plants were fascinating. But the key feature of the experience was your insight and knowledge, put across to us in a very engaging and humorous way. – Paul Rispolo

  1. Hello Robin
    Where is Sussex might I find Alexander seeds?

    They should be ripe and ready for harvesting now. I found them near Penzance, even though I live in Sussex. Now my curiosity has been pricked and would like to find this deliciousness close see to home.

    I know they like costal places but so far I am unsuccessful having tried Seaford, cookmerehaven, and Newhaven.

    Any suggestions will be gratefully received.

    Thank you
