This workshop takes place on Barrtra Beach, 3 miles from Lahinch on the Miltown Malbay Road. Please go directly to the meeting point, Barrtra Seafood Restaurant, Miltown Malbay without stopping by Irish Seed Savers.

Join us for a fully immersive wild food experience, where you will learn about the wonderful variety of seaweeds along our coast, how they grow, best harvesting times and the history of seaweed harvesting in the area. You will learn how to identify and sustainably harvest seaweed, and learn about the many ways to use it in everyday life, from fertiliser for the garden, bathing and the many amazing ways to prepare and use it in our diets. We will then go to the Wild Kitchen around the corner, for a wild food /seaweed lunch. Participants will learn how to prepare and dry seaweed and make three dishes from it including Dashi, which is a wonderful seaweed stock, Organic Vegetable and Dilisk Kimchi and seaweed and kale crisps. Participants can take home seaweed dishes, seaweed for drying and recipes/handouts.

Meeting point: Barrtra Seafood Restaurant, Miltown Malbay at 9.45am for registration, an introduction to the day and a safety talk.
