Hi I'm Mike,

An arborist / forager living on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand hunting unusual plants and mushrooms for a variety of different purposes.

For the past year I have also been working part time at  Aho Aho, the Horticultual gardens at Otaki College. This is a funded project for together  growing veggies with students using regenerative  techniques. 

I am interested in introducing and promoting new native plant products and educating businesses and the general public on native and foraged plants.

Ice cream is a great way to showcase flavours and

I like to utilize it to help people connect with the plants.

If you are interested in learning about edible plants and would like to try my ice cream,

book a tour below.
