March Seaweed Forage From £15 · seacliff,North Berwick,EH39 5PP,GB
March 26 @ 10:00 - 13:30
Making use of the low tides in early spring, we’ll explore the tidal pools of beautiful Seacliff beach, overlooked by Tantallon castle
Making use of the low tides around the spring equinox, we’ll explore the rock pools of beautiful Seacliff beach, overlooked by Tantallon castle, to forage for an array of my favourite sea weeds. This is the perfect time of year for sea vegetable foraging, the growths are lush and new and the spring neap tides provide opportunity to forage species that are further down the tide line and normally submerged. We’ll discuss foraging safety, law and ethics, and demonstrate preparation methods. We’ll also look at some of the edibles growing along the shore, and finish the course with a picnic of wild edible sea and shore springtime foods. This is a three hour course, including a picnic to sample wild foods and drinks, foraging instruction, preparation suggestions, and scrabbling about on slippery and jagged rocks to learn about and then to harvest your own seaweeds.
Please bring scissors and containers, dress appropriately to spend a few hours at the coast and wear sturdy waterproof shoes with a good grip.
