Seaweed Discovery Workshops
What to expect
We start at the seaweed discovery centre in Caherdaniel village with a cup of seaweed infused tea and some sea veg snacks while we view a slideshow introduction to our most commonly used seaweeds. We also learn how the tides work and when seaweeds are most reachable.
Next it’s off to the nearby shore for a low tide guided walk where we will forage, find and identify several of the seaweeds we viewed earlier. Some seaweeds will be eaten fresh from the rocks as you learn how to sustainably harvest, dry and store these plentiful superfoods. Coastal plants will also be foraged and fresh nibbles can often be sampled. On returns to base a tasting lunch with a vast range of seaweed dishes will be savoured with ‘live’ beverages such as seaweed and fruit Kefirs and Kombuchas
Browsing our collection of seaweed foraging publications is encouraged while you learn the basic of cooking with sea veg and some of their many health benefits.
A laminated seaweed ID chart is your take away home gift to get you started on your sea veg journey.
Weather in Kerry is variable so outdoor footwear and raincoat advised.
