approx 10 - 3pm (timing TBC to fit tides)

The coastline of this country has a rich harvest of food material. Our ancestors would have relied upon the seashore to provide a major portion of their diet, especially during the lean times of the year. Edible seaweeds, molluscs, fish and coastal plants are abundant in the clean and clear waters of South Devon. This day out on the beaches and bays of this beautiful coastline will be spent foraging on the strandline, rock-pool rambling, snorkelling, beachcombing and preparing a diverse menu of seashore foods using a number of different cooking methods.

There may also be time for a spot of fishing, swimming and paddling so please feel free to bring swimsuits/wetsuits/snorkels etc

Times: to fit in with the tides so check with office but normally around 10 - 3pm
