Wat je gaat doen

This is an opportunity to get up close and personal with a young but diverse food forest.

The first trees were planted in 2013 so it's far from mature but it's already easy to see many of the symbiotic relationships in action. There are over three hundred edible perennial varieties already growing including forty varieties of fruit & nut trees, dozens of unusual shrubs, berry bushes and medicinal plants, plus seventy kinds of perennial vegetable.

Learn about self-sustaining ecosystems, companion planting and perennial vegetables whilst asking as many questions as you like and tasting some produce along the way.

There'll be a chance to learn more about sustainable bee-keeping with a look at an observation hive for those who wish to.

The tour will be tailored to suit you, depending upon your or your group's existing knowledge or interests. And we can talk about how to apply some forest garden principles to your own plot, if you have one.

Other things to note:
I usually only add availability for about two months in advance. So if you're looking to book further ahead than that then either send me a message to request a date or keep an eye on the calendar, as more dates will appear every month.
I'm open to hosting experiences throughout the winter months, if requested, but the garden is at its best from April to October.

I became a professional gardener in 2011 and since starting my own forest garden project in 2013 have dedicated myself to learning as much about agroforestry as possible.

I've been giving talks & lectures to the schools and gardening clubs of Somerset on all things permaculture since 2014, with subjects ranging from 'perennial vegetables for the smaller garden' to 'the benefits of balanced bee-keeping'.

I am truly passionate about working with nature, as opposed to against it, which is something that becomes evident to those who come to experience the project.

In 2017 I began running tours around my plot, due to popular demand, as well as creating a YouTube channel: "Rob's Discovery"
In which I document the forest garden project.

And in September 2019 I was fortunate enough to be featured in an episode of the BBC's Gardeners' World.

Had the most wondrous visit to Robs garden and our personal tour with Rob, who is so incredibly knowledgeable, and so good at explaining everything, was so interesting and inspiring. He answered every question we had, which only led onto more, due to his amazing knowledge and enthusiasm. We are definitely going back for several more visits to see the garden in different seasons . Couldn’t recommend this visit more highly . Additionally the gardens are suitable for all ages from children upwards. My 87 year old Nan loved the tour just as much as we all did !

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!

If you are at all tempted by this tour do it. It was so interesting and fun. We saw (and tasted!) so many different things. There are lots of ideas you can apply in your own garden, or that would be interesting even you don’t have a garden. And Rob is a great host, such a nice chap. Highly recommend.

Rob was an excellent guide and host. very accommodating, even with our demanding little ones. He was very knowledgeable not only about the plant ect, but also the local history and local historic stories.

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.
