Thomas was so kind! Had to move the time around a little and he was so accommodating. The information was very interesting and he speaks so passionately about foraging, which really imprinted on me and awoke further interest in the topic. Humor and storytelling 10/10 - thanks Thomas! 😊

Thomas was great - picked up loads of knowledge and a few things for tonight's dinner! Also got to sample some homemade gin and vodka. 10/10 would recommend!

Thomas was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We learned a lot and will definitely consider foraging in the future. Very useful literature as well. Excellent.

This local foraging course was absolutely fantastic. Thomas is incredibly knowledgeable and the course flew by with practical info as well as a handy printout to help guide us through the different plant and herbs. Who knew that so much free food is available just at your doorstep! My husband was particularly impressed with how much an urban environment can offer, including Mugwort! It was evident that Thomas is passionate about foraging and wants to share his facts experience all of which we gobbled up, quite literally.

We felt very comfortable with foraging after our session with Thomas, he's done a great job in showing us the ropes and building confidence in our ability to find edible (not poisonous) items in our own neighborhood parks. We look forward to putting this new skill to use for our next hike or local park walk.

A fascinating, eye-opening way to spend a couple of hours. Thomas is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to wild plants, and his enthusiasm has inspired my husband and I to get out , explore nature and enjoy the wholesome past-time of foraging.
