"Fantastic course! Highly recommended. Very friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth. Had a fantastic afternoon and been totally inspired to forage!"
"Our coastal foraging walk with Josh was a highlight from our trip to St Ives. Josh made it fun and interesting for both the adults and the kids (9 and 13 yrs) in our group as we learned to see our surroundings in a new way. The edible bounty along that one stretch of public footpath was really astonishing"
