What is it?

Our foraging seaweed shellfish course is a great way to experience the amazing world of wild edible food in a relaxed and hands on way. Many of the wild food now regarded as “gourmet” is found along the seashore.

The seashore boasts some of the finest wild food in the land and the range of different shellfish and seaweeds are highly sought after food. Spring tides allow us to range far out onto the reefs and exposed rocks on a 2/3 hour identification foraging walk, focusing on shellfish and seaweeds.
