A certain degree of fitness is required as a course could entail walking up to 4 miles or more; over various different trerrains (rocks, stones, mud, sand etc.).

 

15. How long will the course take?

The course will consist of:

  • An introduction - Health and Safety, tides, foraging etiquette ect.
  • Approximately 2-3 hours at the foraging location
  • If applicable/feasible, we then cook some of the foraged items for a taste/sample.

In short the courses can last from 4.5 to 8 hours.

 

 

Coastal Foraging Experiences

Our Coastal Foraging experiences hosted by Craig Evans will teach you all about edible sea-food, where to find or catch it and a bit of local history at the same time.

Thoroughly enjoyable - it really surprised me how much edible (and tasty) food was hiding right under our noses on the beach.
