Edible Coastal Plants & Seaweeds with Vix Hill-Ryder

Sat 28th April 2018

Start at the top of a stunning Cornish Cliff path, discovering tasty wild edible coastal plants, before hitting the beach at low tide where you will be shown how to identify and use as many as a dozen seaweeds, when and where to collect them safely, learn about their nutritional values, how to collect them sustainably, compare their tastes, textures and umami flavouring. A cookery demo showcasing how to best use these ingredients will follow to complete your day. Vix Hill-Ryder is an experienced Forager and is the founder of The Family Foraging Kitchen.

Botanical adventures begin within
our hedgerows…

We are based on the beautiful Rame Peninsula in South East Cornwall. You can choose from hedgerow walks with stunning sea views, coastal walks that finish on the wonderful Cornish shoreline, woodland walks and even discover what's hidden in the wild urban landscapes of our nearest city, just across the water - Plymouth. We range in price from our popular monthly wild food walks (with a cookery class using the wild produce we've collected at the end also included!) for just £20 an adult and children go free. Bespoke private walks can be arranged at any time (and location of your choosing) - and we also offer exciting packages tailored for honeymooners and corporate team building days etc (please see the relevant pages on this site!). We also run courses in traditional countryside crafts - such as bee keeping, willow weaving and working with wild game.
