Coastal Plants Walks

There are many delicious and varied edible plants to be found at the seaside from saltmarsh to cliffs and everywhere in between.

  • Wild vegetables - favourites like Marsh Samphire, Sea Beet and Alexanders
  • Salad leaves like Rocket
  • Berries such as Sea Buckthorn
  • Herbs like Fennel

Join us for a detailed look at these plants learning about their identification and culinary uses.

This session takes the form of a three hour walk.  We will discuss sustainable harvesting, equipment, safety and legal aspects as we walk along the shore and try to locate a range of seasonal edible plants. There will be an opportunity to sample some food and drink made with foraged seashore plant ingredients.
