Course Description

Course Dates 9th April - Start Time 17:30 10th April - Start Time 17:30 21st August - Start Time 18:00 22nd August. - Start Time 18:00 Seaweeds have long been a part of our culture, living on a small maritime island they have been harvested as food all around the British coasts by our great ancestors for a millennia. In our modern culture we are making less and less use of these superfoods that have nutritional value and flavours incomparable to most of the greens from the land. On a seaweed foraging course we will be exploring the intertidal zones of Worthings abundant shores, combing the foreshore for edible seaweeds. Worthing is an excellent location in West Sussex for seaweeds, the rocky substrate on the foreshore is an ideal habitat for a broad diversity of edible seaweeds. We. have choice edibles growing here that are sort after by gourmet chefs and one of the most nutritional species of seaweed in the world which is making scientific breakthroughs and has a firm place in the health food industry. Seaweeds are also excellent for beginner foragers as almost all that can be gathered on foot are edible. The course is highly conducive to natures rhythms and the course times are allocated to when the tide is at its lowest so we can access the rich resources exposed as the tide recedes. Under 18's are free!
