Co będziecie robić

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 garden over a cup of tea or coffee at the end.

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.

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

A wonderful experience, Rob is very knowledgeable. Worth a visit as it will spark your interest in creating a garden like his. He is friendly and you’ll love the chance to sample as you go round the garden.

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.

When I heard that there was a real live example of a forest garden here in Britain, I grabbed my family, and ran to see it. And what an experience! I had heard the term “forest garden” before (magical sounding, isn’t it?), and stumbled across Rob’s videos on YouTube (really helpful!). But nothing prepared me for the complete abundance of both plants and information!!! Even for a seasoned gardener and herbalist such as myself! This really is something that can be done, and beautifully so, on a reasonable sized piece of land (and he is also growing a 20’x20’ garden to show what can be done in the sort of space many of us might have in our own gardens or allotments). Not only is Rob, himself, a relaxed, enthusiastic, lovely person - making it a joy to experience the garden with him - but he has created / is creating this entire garden from scratch! He is growing the trees, bushes, and plants of all sizes, nourishing and revitalising the soil, and kick-starting the entire micro ecosystem. He has built from reclaimed items, giving examples of how it can all be done - and look fabulous - on virtually no budget at all, in an eco-conscious way. I took photos and voice notes along the way, as I’d forgotten my notebook in the car, and when I got home and typed out what I wanted to remember, I had a full 12 pages!!! And that was without the photos! He also gave us information about where to learn even more!! Rob sent us home with cuttings of some of our favourite new plants (which we are excitedly growing now), new ways to use existing plants, and a truly deep excitement for this process. I now very much want to create my own magical forest garden, and hope sincerely that others will, as well. What a gift to have forest gardens everywhere! And how wonderful that we could all be living easily from delicious foods picked right from our own yards. This isn’t your everyday plant-seeds-each-year type of garden we are used to these days. This is a forest garden, full of perennials that come back year after year, or even remain year round, that nurture each other, as well as us. I would recommend Rob’s garden tour unreservedly, to anyone with even a passing interest in plants or permaculture. And even to folks who never had an interest in these things, but are open to learning new and interesting things. It made a wonderful trip, and we hope to visit again soon. PS - We brought our van, with a low undercarriage, and found the roads leading to it just fine to navigate. Our sat nav found it without an issue, and Rob met us in person to bring us to the entrance.

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!

A really wonderful experience. Rob is a great host and the what he has created with his space is fascinating and totally inspiring. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the extra touches from the tea in the yurt, the cuttings we were given and extra insight into bee keeping really made it a very special experience.
