Seaweed for Health

Castlewellan Arboretum and Annesley Garden, Castlewellan Forest Park, Castlewellan, Down, BT31 9BU
Seaweed

About

Seaweed has long been used in both cooking and skin/hair care but the ancient art of identifying, harvesting and correctly preparing this underused resource is becoming lost to many.

Growing plentifully around the County Down coastline are diverse native seaweeds. During this workshop Michelle Wilson from Crawfords Rock Seaweed Company will show you how to "Savour the Seas".

Expect to sample some edible seaweed and make a small skin scrub to take home. Michelle will also teach you about sustainable seaweed harvesting.
