Places where one ecosystem meets another, like where the sea meets the land, are especially abundant wild food sources. In this walk we will gather foods along the shore in Blackwaterfoot taking in the beautiful scenery and rich history of the area. You can expect to encounter umami rich seaweed, coastal succulent plants, crustaceans, herbs, fruits and seeds along this walk. We'll also discover some important local history and folklore about the enigmatic and ancient landscape overlooking us.
The Wild Food Feast will involve freshly cooking up what we have gathered along the way with some additional foraged and homemade sides. The specific food will depend on what is most abundant and delicious at the time. We will enjoy eating and cooking together outside. Some of the food will be prepared ahead of time, so if you have any dietary requirements or preferences please let me know in the event registration form at the checkout or email me details on firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is two and a half hours long and the pace will be slow, with plenty of stops for tasting, discovering and discussing.
The walk is open to all age groups. Children under 16 are free of charge but will need to be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are very welcome at all Wild Food Arran walks, providing they are happy to be around groups of excited people.
