Welcome to The Natural Path

 
Foraging...

If you have made it here to my page, chances are you are already interested in learning foraging.  You probably have a foraging book or two on your book shelf and have been waiting for the right moment to come along and propel you forward with the confidence to get out there and get gathering yourself.


My aim. To take you to hidden, remote & unusual places so you can slow down....
re-engage with nature & the natural environment with the added benefit of finding tasty, healthy, good things to eat.

Conservation Contracting, Coppicing & Hedge laying...

My team and I primarily restore large areas of derelict or over stood Coppice, lay hedges and supply Hazel to clients wanting product for their own projects.  


Working with landowners, agents & conservation organisations, I can advise on the grant application process, write woodland management plans and implement restoration projects using traditional management techniques such as coppicing, ride widening and glade creation. We also plant new woodland using native, mixed broadleaf tree’s such as Linden, Oak, Hazel, Sweet Chestnut and Beech.


I also get a great deal of satisfaction from laying really long, over stood agricultural hedges as well as the fancy ones in front of gardens.


Gardening...

In between woodland management projects, I take care of gardens for a number of clients.  Training on and off over a number of years with the RHS in various gardening management techniques in order to offer Garden landscaping and design as well as installation and maintenance.

I have an allotment and grow many of the flowers and plants I use to populate my clients gardens. I grow my plants Biodynamically and Organically working with nature not against it and planting things suitable to the environment they are expected to flourish in.
