About this Workshop

You’ll learn how to find food in a pinch and where to safely forage on the coast. You’ll learn how to find sustainable edible wild weeds, nutrient rich plants for survival and beach forage super-foods like seaweeds and shellfish. We’ll cover any poisonous plants you should avoid and simple cooking methods for the food you find in this 2 hour video collection.
