KiIlfarassey Strand provided a beautiful backdrop to yesterday evenings forage. The edible species were easy to find and we sampled some wild dishes afterwards. Thanks to the Calmast team for organising the Bealtaine Festival of Outdoor Science and to everyone who came along.

Recent Events

The last two months have been busy and exciting – meeting new people and visiting new places!

Dungarvan Food Festival - despite inclement weather, we had 2 great forages on Clonea Strand. Loftus Hall (Nuns beach) provided a dramatic setting for our May forage, and we found 4-5 edible seaweeds on a sunny windy evening. The children in this group were so knowledgeable about the creatures living on the rocky shore, reminding us that we share the seaweed, along with all other resources on the planet.
