Thanks to all who came along to our Seaweed Foraging Event on Sunday!
The weather held up and the group of foragers were lovely! Marie aka TheSeaGardener (or the Sea lady as one guest called her) was in flying form and shared so much knowledge with the group. Thank you Marie!
We met as arranged in the carpark of The Strand Cahore with many of us opting for a pre-forage coffee from Seabiscuit – delicious, before car pooling to the nearby Glascarrig Beach. Wexford beaches are generally quite sandy of course (which is why Wexford is such a tourist destination) but this beach is perfect for Seaweed with it’s rocky shoreline.
We discovered 8 edible Seaweed species in the area including Sea Lettuce, Bladderwrack, False Carrageen, Kelp and a few Seashore edibles too and Marie gave tips on sustainable collection, uses and storage.
Afterwards a gang of us headed in to The Strand Cahore Restaurant for a glass of wine and enjoyed some really beautiful food including their Homemade Vegetarian Parcel, Smoked Mornay, Lemon Sole and Pizza followed by delicious desserts and lot’s of laughs!!
It was a fun day out and thanks for all the lovely feedback from everyone on the Whatsapp group 🙂
Our last Forage of the year is coming up on November 30th (Halloween weekend) and is a Mushroom Forage with Wild Food Mary, taking place at the stunning Mount Briscoe Organic Farm – Options to include Lunch and Walk or choose forage only are available
