seashore foraging walk

Wild leaves, flowers, berries, seeds, roots and seaweeds have been used for food and healing by all cultures for thousands of years. Our hedgerows, fields, parks, urban areas and coastlines are abundant with useful wild plants.

Learn how to safely identify Native Irish Coastal Plants, Herbs, Seaweeds and Shellfish, with plenty of tips on using them to create tasty and nutritious wild food dishes, drinks and simple herbal remedies.

seashore foraging walk

This walk will mainly focus on the plants that we find on the day. We will identify and taste some of the seasonal plants, berries and sea vegetables that we find and we will discuss their associated folklore, along with their culinary and medicinal uses. We will also identify the seaweeds that we find on the beach and share ideas of how to incorporate their mega healthy properties into an everyday diet.

Seaweed selection

We will have a seashell hunt for the children, where they will have a set amount of time to collect as many different shells as they can find and then we will try to identify them. Make sure they bring along their seaside buckets!
