Shoreline seaweed and marine foraging

Taught by Ian Donald, AIDA instructor trainer and Author of the bestselling book, ‘Underwater foraging – Freediving for food’ and star of many TV specials on foraging and freediving , this course is shoreline foraging masterclass. 
Ian was one of the first to specialise in marine foraging in the UK and his book has been the starting point for many in both freediving/spearfishing and foraging.
Seaweeds are full of flavour and stacked with vitamins and minerals. They also happen to be eminently sustainable. 
Not just seaweeds though. We will collect a few delectable shoreline plants that add flavour and bulk to meals. Shellfish such as whelks and winkles add to the mix, to create nutritioinally complete meals.
The course last just over half a day and includes foraging time and preparation/cooking time with Ian.
You will not be required to dive in this course. Walking and wading only!
