  •   Rob was extremely knowledgeable and happy to share his knowledge. This is an incredible place to visit! Rob gave us some fantastic ideas for sustainable living, developing our garden and our lifestyle. We didn’t feel rushed at all, and enjoyed the extras - the tea/coffee and the cuttings Rob gave us. We were lucky to spot a deer, a peregrine falcon and a weasel from the garden. This was an interesting, thought provoking and educational trip which was also enjoyable and relaxed. This experience is highly recommended.

      We had the most wonderful autumnal afternoon exploring Rob's forest garden, he is so enthusiastic and natural, so careful of his environment, generous with his knowledge and fascinating to listen to. We left with pockets full of seeds, tummies happy with delicious samplings of leaves, roots and berries and my friend, whose "special" birthday it was, was given a precious lemon, picked straight from the tree. We couldn't have wished for a more enjoyable experience with a very special person in a very special corner of the mendips. Thank you so much Rob!

      This was a remarkable experience because it echoed and responded to a range of issues such as sustainability, ecological balance and biodiversity that are becoming increasingly important to all of us. What made the presentation so compelling and memorable was that, completely unexpectedly, we had met a man who, starting from a level of knowledge and understanding that sounded as though they were not much greater than our own, had addressed and found his way through these issues. Rob is a well-informed (and, happily, not academic) guide who is passionate about the subject of forest gardens. We had an absorbing and fascinating two hours with him and left feeling uplifted and inspired. I thoroughly recommend this experience which may just change the way you look and life.

  •   I had a wonderful, magical, inspiring, informative , practical and uplifting visit to Rob's Discovery forest garden. He was very punctual and efficient hosting my visit and very clear, helpful and thoughtful in delivering his excellent experience and knowledge about his Forest Garden. He gave me many tips for starting my own project and was very open to questions and helpful in answering all that I asked. For those interested in AgroForest Gardening and permaculture, I would definitely recommend this experience and visit. It was just what I was looking for. Thank you!

      Such a special place and a lovely experience. It was really inspiring to see what can be done with a hectare and an imagination. Rob has created a beautiful haven and home.
    Rob's knowledge of bees, plants, his animals and pest control was impressive and his videos on YouTube barely do his home justice. Thanks for a thrilling tour, Rob. We will re-visit.

      Super experience visiting Rob's forest garden. We loved his passion for the lifestyle and great way of explaining everything. It was a really special day and Mum absolutely loved it.

    thumb Brigitte

      Rob was just as delightful in the flesh as on telly where I?d seen him first.
    I was the only one on the tour today. He is full of information and happy to share his experiences. I was given loads of cuttings to get me off to a flying start- it feels like new beginnings for me. I?ll be back in a sunnier season. Thanks, Becca

    thumb Rebecca

      Highly recommend visiting Rob for his forest garden experience. Rob's communication was clear on the lead up to the visit, making the meet as easy as possible. The actual tour was superb! Rob is very passionate and has a knack of explaining things in a way that makes sense, he is also extremely knowledgeable through his years of experimentation; so regardless of your prior knowledge you will definitely get a lot out of it.

    thumb Andrew

      I have just spent 2+ hours immersed in Rob’s knowledge and passion for his amazing forest garden. Curious to see plants, shrubs and trees from all over the world, which yield their flavours and scents. And bees. And geese. And ducks. And to see how Rob lives a unique lifestyle off his land. Now have serious land envy. A wonderful experience.
