Enjoyable experience with a wild plant enthusiast! This was my second walk with Thomas. After a great experience last spring I was curious to see what, if anything is around in the middle of winter. I was amazed to see a different variety of wild plants to forage in the same location. It was a wonderful experience and Thomas also gave me ideas about making lotions and potions using medicinal plants. I plan to go on more foraging walks now to see what nature has to offer in summer and autumn.

Incredible experience. Thomas is so knowledgeable and so easy to get along with. It feels like we've been friends for years, and the entire experience blew by in what felt like 15 minutes. 10/10 recommend to anyone looking to learn a bit more about nature and foraging.

Thomas was a fantastic host. We had a great time learning all about foraging and it really opens your eyes to what is available on your doorstep. Thomas homemade apple and blackberry gin also went down a treat!

Had a lovely intro to foraging with Thomas. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The option to taste his home flavoured gin was a fantastic addition to the experience :)

The experience was great! It's fantastic to learn about quite a few different plants you normally ignore on a daily basis without knowing what wonderful gems mother Nature has tucked away! Thomas is very friendly, clear, and knowledgeable! Loved the tasters as well!
