Finding unusual plants for unusual purposes


I'm Mike

When I'm not running around after this little pixie I am running around on the Kapiti coast of New Zealand foraging unusual plants and mushrooms for a variety of different purposes incl. culinary, gin botanicals, floristry. It's a fun time!

I am an arborist by trade and during my tree work I have gained access to a lot of different environments. Through this have created an ever growing data base of plant products.

I am registered with the local council.

Here's what I can do for you...

What's hiding in your garden?

- I'd love to share my knowledge about edible plants with you in your own garden in exchange for potential sustainable foraging on your property.
