Coastal Foraging course dates – Summer 2014/15

Imagine an icy turquoise sea, fresh salty breezes, a long white sandy beach and rock pools filled with food.

Idyllic, yes?

Yes. But wait – there’s more….

On a Saturday closest to the new or full moon (to ensure the lowest tide for optimal forage time) a group of like minded foodies, armed with permits, relevant equipment and new found sustainable harvesting techniques, all forage in a group along the inter tidal zone for their lunch.

Does this make you hungry for knowledge, keen to awaken your inner hunter-gatherer and try out some exciting new dishes?

Then join us on one of our Coastal Forages this summer. Here’s a look at what we got up to over the past few weekends…

COASTAL FORAGING

Our half day Coastal Foraging course will introduce you to some of our local edible seaweed, explore the magical world of rock pools, meet like minded people, learn how to prepare your macro-algae and have a delicious feast!
We will start off the day meeting at Scarborough beach, and after an intro we will make our way down to the tidal pools where we will forage for edible seaweeds and mussels. This beautiful coastline is abundant with food! As we always forage sustainably, we will be focusing only on the seaweed that is prolific in the area, stressing how to treat the wildlife with respect. After our morning on the rocks, we will head to Gael’s Beach Cottage on foot with our foraged food to prepare and create an outdoor lunch feast. Notes include intro, identification, recipes and tide charts. 

Price: R400 per person or R300 for a group of 4.

Bring: Beach gear, slip-slops or booties, your mussel license (essential – available at your nearest post office), cameras, water bottle, a sense of humour and an appetite! Also please bring your drink of choice for yourself to enjoy with the meal (beer, juice, spring water, wine etc whatever you prefer)

Dates:

Saturday 21st Feb 10am – 2pm
Saturday 7th March 9am – 1pm
Saturday 21st March 9am – 1pm

April dates TBC
