Join us on a guided foraging walk across the cliff-tops and along the beach and I’ll introduce you to the fantastic edible coastal plants, seaweeds, crustaceans & shellfish as we come across them.
I’ll teach you how to identify these wild edibles and medicinals for yourself and how to tell them apart from any poisonous lookalikes.
The walk is about 4 hours, very slow-paced as we stop regularly to look at things, and with stops for lunch and making your own collections. There’s a good low tide that weekend so we can see more seaweeds and creatures in the lower intertidal zone than usual.
We’ll be able to taste some things raw as we go round, and will gather at the end to cook up some of what we’ve found for some wild nibbles and to brew some wild tea. You can also look through my books and learn to identify finds for yourself as well.
Children are very welcome and must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or responsible adult at all times. There is no lower age limit, I leave it up to parents to judge whether their child can manage to walk 2 miles or so over the 6-hour course period and follow safety instruction.
There are campsites and B&Bs in the village, or Whitby is only a few miles away. Bring a packed lunch which we’ll stop to eat lunch together down on the beach.
Booking is secured on payment. Tickets are: £40 adult, £10 child (age 8 or over), child 7 or under goes free. For more information see my website: www.eduliswildfood.co.uk/courses
