Það sem verður gert

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.

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.

Rob was just as delightful in the flesh as on telly where I’d seen him first. I was the only one on the tour today. He is full of information and happy to share his experiences. I was given loads of cuttings to get me off to a flying start- it feels like new beginnings for me. I’ll be back in a sunnier season. Thanks, Becca

We had the most wonderful autumnal afternoon exploring Rob's forest garden, he is so enthusiastic and natural, so careful of his environment, generous with his knowledge and fascinating to listen to. We left with pockets full of seeds, tummies happy with delicious samplings of leaves, roots and berries and my friend, whose "special" birthday it was, was given a precious lemon, picked straight from the tree. We couldn't have wished for a more enjoyable experience with a very special person in a very special corner of the mendips. Thank you so much Rob!
