Event description

Description

Come along to a Spring Beach Seaweed Forage at Point Cook Coastal Park Beach. Your guide Chris Rockley will help make sense of the mass collectively called seaweed and show you what is edible or useful locally. You'll learn what, where, when and how to collect sustainably in the field.

At home, seaweed can be used in a multitude of ways. In the kitchen foraged seaweed is washed and used fresh, blanched, cooked or blended. Many algae are high in iron, iodine and other minerals and can be easily added into salads, soups, dips and other delicious dishes. It's a great as a green vege substitute. Seasonally, Spring sees healthy sea lettuce, velvet horn and the end of the Wakame and reds. Harvest enough seaweed for a recipe on the day or just enjoy the seasonal dish of the day. Last time we had Wakame soup.

Point Cook Coastal Beach has unique variety of Seaweeds that are quite different from neighbouring areas. It is right next to a Marine Sanctuary and we'll be foraging at the public beach. There are many introduced seaweeds found here that are popularly eaten around the world. As seaweed is seasonal, there are always new finds. Any unusual finds brought back to base for further identification.

Low impact activity, no rocks.
