CUSTOMER COMMENT : "It was such fun and I learned a lot. The lunch was absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to do it again, please do, let me know if you are planning another day. Cycling, sunshine, great food, ideas for the future and lovely warm people. I cooked the foraged potatoes tonight with olive oil and the wild rocket, it was great. Tomorrow I am going to pick some sea buckthorn to make juice.Thanks again and best wishes,Bridget."
