We've planned a number of Forages and Demos for 2017, find one to suit you below

26 Jun

We have been inspired by the Ireland's Ancient East concept to think about the earliest, ancient settlers of this island, and what foods they lived on.We have researched the plant and animal species living here at the time, about 8,000 years ago and created a range of dishes based on what was available to those Mesolithic people. With some concessions to modern tastes, we hope to share that on the new moon in July. We will start foraging on the shore for seaweeds and continue through the Anne Valley gathering wild plants. Come with a spirit of adventure and take a walk on the wild side!

Tides and Moons are perfectly aligned in the coming year, so we will be out foraging throughout the season from March to October. We are fixing dates for private group requests at the moment and then we will be announcing dates for forages, talks, demos ...all things seaweed and rocky shore.

Our last Seaweed Forage and Tasting for 2016 takes place on Sunday, October 16th. We've chosen this date to coincide with the Hunter's Moon, when there will be a good low tide. Meeting outside Mother McHugh's Pub in Fenor Village at 11 am, foraging at a nearby beach, followed by a seaweed brunch tasting, we will finish around 1.30 pm. Several edible species of seaweed will be identified and you will learn how to distinguish these from non-edibles, how to use them in a variety of ways, how to use seaweed to enhance your garden soil and how to use seaweed in skincare. The small group will allow plenty of time for questions. To book, use the Paypal link here. You will then receive an email with more details about the forage.

About Us

We are passionate about seaweed - foraging for it, cooking with it, sharing our knowledge and experience with others, sustainably using it, recognising that it is part of an important and quite amazing ecological web.

Marie Power, aka, The Sea Gardener, grew up on the Copper Coast of Co. Waterford and leads walks, give talks & workshops on seaweed and rocky shore ecology for people who want to know more about this indigenous health food.
