Sustainable Seasonal Seaweed (Postponed)
28th March, 2020 : 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
£24 – £30
Further to the Government’s recent update on COVID-19, we have taken the decision to postpone all of our events from now until the end of April. Full refunds will be given.
We are reviewing the situation daily and will give regular updates on future events, including new dates for postponed events.
Visit Scotland is celebrating a year of Coasts and Waters this 2020 with a program of exciting events and performances planned nationwide. We have been inspired to celebrate our own coastline and have asked professional seaweed harvester, Jayson, of East Neuk Seaweed to host a workshop teaching us all about the many uses of seaweed in the garden!
Join us for a walk to Dysart beach where we will learn how to identify local, seasonal and edible seaweeds. Jayson will be showing us how to keep safe when harvesting seaweed and how to use sustainable harvesting techniques in order to protect this natural resource. We’ll also discuss tidal zones and learn when to harvest different seaweeds.
We will then take some seaweed back to the cabin where we will discuss the many ways you can utilise this abundant natural resource in your gardens.
This is a great opportunity to take part in a fun, exciting and informative morning outdoors! The workshop is suitable for over 16s only and will involve some physical activity over potentially rocky terrain. Access to the beach is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with limited mobility.
Booking is required as spaces are limited.
Full price: £30
Greener Kirkcaldy members/volunteers: £27
