Seaweed and Shellfish Aquaculturist, Iarfhlaith Connellan and Ger Talty of Spanish Point Sea Veg will lead guided walks and talks on the Flaggy Shore, near New Quay highlighting the abundant seaweed varieties available for harvesting and processing.
While you are foraging on the shore our Slow Food members will be preparing our “Seafood Bake” fire, cooking delicious fresh seafood to eat with a picnic provided by you, the members.
Ullrich Hoeche will demonstrate pickling of seaweed products for later use.
Bring along a flask of tea or coffee as we will be eating outside.
Make sure you bring along suitable boots/footwear for the shore walk. Seaweed shores are generally slippery and can be difficult to negotiate.
