  •   It was very impressive and we took a lot of suggestion home with us. A great view of a nature-loving lifestyle, highly recommended!

      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.

      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!

      We visited Rob’s garden this afternoon as a party of 4 adults and 2 young children. 2 of the adults didn’t even have their own garden and admitted they had zero interest in anything garden related! Within the 2 hours with Rob we were all completely captivated with everything he had to tell us about how he had created his forest garden from scratch and visions of what it will become. Our children particularly enjoyed feeding the geese and sampling numerous berries. The time flew by and we left very eager to return in the future.

      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.

      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.

  •   Booked as 'something a little different' for my wife's birthday weekend away... We both loved meeting Rob and getting a tour of this magical corner of the Mendip Hills... Rob is an excellent communicator and explains complex subjects in a fun and engaging way... The idea that not everything has to be processed and come out of a packet is refreshing and super positive in todays world. My wife is inspired and has already started planning a forest garden area for our next home. :-)

      Rob has made a tremendous effort over the years to create a forest garden from the ground up with the help of a single book and stores of patience. He knows his garden inside out, shares his experience earnestly - success and failures - and gave us a glimpse at his peculiar way of living. Our (young) kids were very interested in the geese and ducklings, less in plants, but that won’t be blamed on the attraction! When we visited a lot of berries and plants were not yet ripe so I guess there may be even better times to visit. A good visit overall, and we loved the flowered garlic so much we could have eaten a season’s worth in an afternoon. Thanks Rob.

      Rob was very engaging and communicated well up to the experience. A great two hour walk around Robs garden. Due to the nature of the experience you’ll get something different each time you go. Finding out how Rob uses what he grows was fascinating. Will definitely go again!

    thumb Mark

      Rob's knowledge on forest garden is amazing. He is very kind and willing to share his knowledge happily. He generously shared many samples from his garden for us to try planting in our gardens, sensing our avid interest. Also, he continued the tour for longer than the advertised time as we had many questions. We will be definitely coming back with some more of our friends. Thank you Rob for a wonderful time. You give us hope that in this world, one doesn't have to be consumeristic to thrive.
