CURRENTLY WE ARE IN LONELY PLANET TOP 6 FORAGING DESTINATIONS IN THE US! All along the pristine coast of Central California, many species of delicious edible seaweeds exist. Kelp is some of the most tasty and nutritious of wild superfoods! I will meet participants and take them to seldom visited local spots and teach them basic phycology (marine algae science) and sustainable harvesting techniques. Not only will participants partake in a unique experience surrounded by breathtaking scenery, but they will leave with the knowledge of how to sustainably harvest nutritious seaweed for themselves for years to come. We make an amazing seaweed Ramen in the traditional Japanese form at the end.
Harvesting and eating seaweed is my passion that I will share with you as the guide of these amazing family friendly intertidal adventures. I especially love passing down harvesting knowledge to my own children and the next generation of foragers. I started off as an edible kelp harvester and also sell my fresh and dried product at farmer's markets. I also make a killer seaweed forager's ramen. I've been the foreman of aquaculture facilities such as the Morro Bay Oyster Company and a licensed commercial salmon fisherman and like to think I've become more sustainable as I age. My family heritage is Irish/British and harvesting fresh seaweed is in my heritage. Come enjoy the intertidal with me and my family!
Lunch: Bowls of ramen noodles made spectacular with fresh seaweed harvested by the participants themselves.
We will meet at Estero Bluffs State Park a few miles north of Cayucos, CA. From there we will travel to one of several large tidepool areas between Estero Bluffs and Ragged Point, near southern Big Sur. No matter what tide is present there will always be edible seaweed available for participants to enjoy. We also are usually lucky enough to see many marine mammals and creatures that inhabit the intertidal ecosystem
