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.

Our (young) kids were very interested in the geese and ducklings, less in plants, but that won’t be blamed on the attraction! When we visited a lot of berries and plants were not yet ripe so I guess there may be even better times to visit. A good visit overall, and we loved the flowered garlic so much we could have eaten a season’s worth in an afternoon. Thanks Rob.
