GATHER is more than plant ID, more than recipes, more than a foraging guide, more than  history and folklore. It is all of these and much more. A community encouraging insight, and an amazing Mentor. 

My awareness of the ecosystem in our nature reserve has greatly improved as a result.

I thank Robin for creating this community and allowing us to learn from his rich experience, and in a very fun way.  We encourage each other.

We are different from other online learning spaces.

  • First, we are not an app.
  • We are not just a course or academy.
  • We are a community.
Second, we don't view foraging as a passing trend.

It is an ancient practice that helps restore connection to the natural world, and boosts your physical and mental wellbeing.

A path to peace, contentment and serenity.

A way to become empowered and resilient.

GATHER is for anyone who loves plants and foraging.

It is about exploring the deep relationship between plants and humans.

If this is you, welcome.

I've often heard people say they wish they could download Robin's brain and I think this is the closest we're going to get! The community and notebooks don't disappoint. GATHER! is a real blessing.

Robin Harford is so passionate about foraging. What he doesn’t know about, it isn’t worth knowing about.

My love of the plants and my interaction with them was given a massive boost by your knowledge. I am now starting the pre-study for a PhD in Mycology. Your enthusiasm for the world around us is infectious, thank you.

Plants are the foundation of human culture

They are 400 million years old. Modern humans a mere 200,000 years old.

Our existence would not be possible without them.

When we are born, and then throughout our entire life, every breath we take has been given to us by plants.

Nothing in the human world could exist without plants.

In the past our knowledge of the plant kingdom went deep … very deep.

It is through remembering the myths, folklore and stories of plants and how they nourish and heal us, that we deepen our sense of belonging to the natural world.
