Who doesn't like heading to the coast in the Summer, to explore, forage, cook, eat, paddle, swim and relax amid the splendour and beauty of the ocean? Coastal succulents & other plants are in their early stages and/or prime, flowers are swaying and displaying their colours, the marine algae are thriving, the fish are moving closer in to shore with the warmer waters and the weather is generally at it's sunniest best: perfect combinations!
Saturday 16th June:
Seaweeds & Coastal Plants at Bamburgh. 11am - 6pm.
One of the most delightful locations for a wide and exciting range of edible, useful seaweeds and plants - the views of Bamburgh Castle, less than a quarter a mile away, add a dramatic alternative back drop to the stunning coastline and ocean views. On this course you will learn; how to identify a range of edible seaweeds and coastal plants, how to preserve and cook with them and when/where is best to find them. We will also discuss mindful gathering, coastal safety and the optimal Moon and Seasonal cycles to optimise your seaweed and plant foraging hunts. After the first session looking at and gathering seaweeds, we will have a short break before exploring the coastal plants and after that we will then create an alfresco beach cook up with our days finds, along some other ingredients I will bring in addition.
Includes wild snacks/drinks refreshments as well as a beach cook up.
Adults £60. Under 16's free with a paying adult (a donation toward food costs for ages 12-16 will be appreciated). To book email: firstname.lastname@example.org
