Take a plunge into seaweeds…

Join full time foraging teacher Mark Williams for a deep dive into the delicious and nutritious world of seaweeds.

This webinar is timed a few days ahead of the lowest tides of the year in the UK, so you’ll have plenty of chance to use your new knowledge while it is still fresh in your mind!

The webinar is designed to give you all the information you need to get started safely and sustainably foraging seaweeds and how to use them in your diet. Areas covered include:

  • What seaweeds are and a little bit of their science
  • The important jobs seaweeds play in nature
  • Safe, considered and sustainable harvesting strategies
  • The how, where and when of the most most rewarding seaweeds
  • In-depth coverage of 15 common seaweeds
  • Cleaning, processing and preserving seaweeds
  • The nutritional properties of seaweeds
  • How to use seaweeds in the kitchen
  • Recipe ideas and videos
  • A live question and answer session
  • Further reading and resources to take your learning forward

Please note: This webinar is focussed on UK seaweeds. While much of the information, and many of the seaweeds covered, are relevant to other areas of the world, some may not be.

This webinar is aimed at beginners, and more experienced seaweed enthusiasts who wish to connect more deeply with the subject.

The full webinar will last for around 1 hour 30 minutes and includes on-location recorded videos, live chat, detailed photographs and diagrams, and a live question and answer sessions.
