SEASIDE FORAGING WORKSHOP WITH DIEGO BONETTO AND OLIVER BROWN.

EVER WALKED ALONG THE COASTLINE AND WONDERED ABOUT ALL OF THOSE PLANTS, SEAWEED AND SEAFOOD?
ARE THEY EDIBLE? HOW DO YOU HARVEST THEM? HOW DO YOU POSITIVELY IDENTIFY THEM? ARE YOU ALLOWED TO COLLECT THEM?

Join Sydney forager Diego Bonetto and wild food expert Oliver Brown on a 3 hour workshop learning the what, where and how of collecting a meal from the seashore.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from two of Sydney’s most knowledgeable people when it comes to sourcing food from the land and sea.

Oliver is an archaeologist with an obsession about where food comes from and how it gets to the table. This has made him enough of a forager, fisher, hunter, gardener, beekeeper and cook to take on the challenge of going for a year living on wild and homegrown food with just ten other ingredients allowed into the kitchen. All while keeping up the office day job and family life in suburban Sydney.

Check the work of Oliver on his website Fat of the Land and Sea

Diego is an edible weeds advocate renown for his offering of urban foraging workshops. Building on the knowledge acquired while growing up on a farm in Italy, Diego introduce people to the ever-present food and medicine plants that surround us. He collaborates extensively with chefs, herbalists, environmentalists and cultural workers promoting new understanding of what the environment has to offer.

WHAT WILL WE DO?
We will take a walk from Gordons Bay to Clovelly's northern headland (Shark Point) and learn about the most common edible seaweeds, coastal wild food, littoral plants and their uses from an indigenous and cosmopolitan perspective.
We will touch on issues of legal restrictions, ecology and fragility of ecosystems, stewardship and care for the land and sea.

This is an informative workshop designed to empower people with identification skills. Participants will receive material on the day and follow up links so to progress with their own research. The knowledge is widespread and old and this learning experience will empower participants by giving the possibility to meet, touch, smell and even taste the plants.  Always eat in small amounts as a start.

This is a family and pet friendly stroll by the sea. Dress for the weather and bring camera and notebook if you wish to retain the information. Venturing onto the rock platform will depend on wave conditions.

 

Cancellation policy: This is an all weather event and we will cancel only in the case of heavy rain or strong wind, in which case we would issue a full refund or offer an alternative date for your bookings.

WHEN: Sunday October 15 - 9:00am to 12:00pm

WHERE: Meet at bus stop at the end of Clovelly Road.
