Description

This course is run just outside the picturesque village of Mousehole, away from the harbour and boats, in a beautiful open and often sparsely visited cove. It is easy to get to, there will be little walking, with a wonderful diversity of seaweeds.

Course outline and what to expect:

  • 8-10 seaweeds
  • Guidance on seaweed identification, safety, seasons and how to harvest and pick
  • Tried and tested suggestions on cooking seaweeds and recipes
  • How to dry and store seaweeds
  • Nutritional and medicinal information (where known, please note I am not a Medical Herbalist)
  • Wild seaweeds tasters – I will pre-make tasters that incorporate seaweeds, which we will enjoy during the course, e.g. one of the following;
    • – seaweed hummus and seaweed bread
    • – hot spicy seaweed broth
    • – seaweed crackers and wild garlic and seaweed dip
    • – sweet seaweed cookies or meringues
  • Guidelines on the legal side of harvesting seaweeds, including a Seaweed Harvesting Handout.
  • Opportunity to buy a signed copy of my Seaweed book/s.

What to wear: There will be a fair amount of standing around and it is often more breezy on the shore. Please bring/wear layers, a wind proof and weather appropriate clothing. Footwear you are happy to get a little wet, and feel comfortable and confident in for walking across potentially slippery rocks, e.g. wellies, sailing shoes or bare feet.

Meet: Outside the Sandpiper Gallery, Mousehole Harbour, Mousehole, TR19 6QE

Min/Max numbers: 5-15 adults. You are welcome to come alone or with others

Transport: Ample car parks though do give yourself time to park, as not all are nearby. Local buses from Penzance, do let me know if you can offer or need a lift.

What to Bring: Weather appropriate clothing, layers can be  helpful. Bottle of water or drink, snacks (optional), any personal medication needed, sun lotion, camera, notebook and pen.
