Past appointments include Senior Lecturer in Woodmachining, Bench Joiner, Cabinet Maker, forage leader, forest school leader. Colin is also a lead admin on the UK's largest social media group with 80K members, Mushroom Spotters UK on Facebook.

Mushroom foraging courses. Foraging for mushrooms, you will learn to slow down, to connect with the forest and understand how species connect with each other. Learn how the mycorrhizal species help the trees to gather nutrients and support each other, how the saprotrophic species break down dead matter in a way that no other thing in nature can do. The format of a forage course is to liven your palate with a sample or a few of gins made from wild ingredients, gaultheria or sloe or pinecone and many more. Tastes to blow your mind. Then, staffs in hand, a forage walk/ A slow paced wander through the woods, learning about the fungi we find and collecting some in our baskets for the fry up at the end where we get to taste the treats we find. A forage walk is overflowing with wellbeing and mindfulness and is a welcome break from our busy lives.
