" I have just completed an amazing foraging 5 month course with the lovely Lauren.

I was worried that I would not know enough to get started but she quickly put me at ease, using what I knew and my interests in plants and trees and building from there.

Her relaxed teaching style ensured I was comfortable making mistakes but her questions and prompts ensured I knew enough to competently transfer knowledge from the course into my own business.

What I loved was Lauren does not have a one size fits all approach. She knew I was interested in the medicinal side and also folklore and her wide-ranging knowledge meant she could pull these areas into the course.

I would highly recommend Lauren and look forward to working with her again soon! "

" Just wanted to say thank you Lauren for a great morning this morning at Hogganfield Loch. Myself and 2 children were amazed at your knowledge. The session was informative and engaging and I’m sure it’s not the last you will see of us 😉"

- Laura, Glasgow

" I would just like to say, had a fantastic foraging experience with Lauren on Sunday morning, such an approachable, confident, knowledgeable and funny lady, totally in her zone, which was really nice. And what a mind, so much information to share, brilliant and refreshing experience. Would highly recommend. "

- Lynnie, West Dunbartonshire
