I run a number of foraging and plant hunting days, searching for edible and medicinal species. The best time of year for foraging is Spring and Autumn, although there are always things to be found.

In addition to the events I present, I offer bespoke sessions for groups/families/friends, children or adults.

I have worked with many diverse people, from 8 year old Forest School children to 80 year old WI members. It is very much a two-way process and every time I learn something new myself.

I have lived and botanised in South Shropshire for 40 years and during that time I have conducted plant surveys for many organisations including the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Natural England, the National Trust, the Woodland Trust, Caring for Gods Acre, and our local Community Wildlife Groups.

I have helped set up the Marches Meadow Group and I am currently running a Road verges project and an Invasive plants project, amongst others.

My Work

My work is largely botanical surveying but I can also offer advice and practical skills on many aspects of ecological land management such as:
• planting and maintaining woodlands and orchards
• creating ponds and wildflower meadows
• creating gardens for wildlife

“We were very impressed and grateful to Rob Rowe and his team (Shropshire Fungus Group) for identifying and recording fungi present in our 15 hectare mature woodland in September. Some 82 species were listed in their report. What an eye opener!”
