Incredible Edibles: Coastal Foraging

Learn to identify seasonal edibles around the Silverdale coast


Location: Silverdale area

Want to spice up your salads or add some colour to your cooking? Join us for this fascinating half-day of coastal foraging around Silverdale. Under the expert guidance of Matt Normansell, the course will help you to identify a range of seasonal edibles around the coastline and to differentiate these from potentially deadly lookalikes. More than 30 common edible species are usually covered.

Matt will introduce you to foraging law and ethics, ID tips and tricks, sustainability and harvesting techniques, medicinal uses for plants and the foraging mind-set (learn to look, not to search). There’ll also be the opportunity to sample some of nature’s goodies that we’ve found along the way with a small cook-up to create a sushi-style lunch. 

Come dressed for the weather and with sturdy footwear for walking.

Part of the Arnside and Silverdale AONB Food and Local Produce Festival
