Welcome to The Sea Gardener

If you are interested in seaweed cookery, foraging, health benefits, garden and beauty uses, there is something here for you.

We have been running seaweed workshops along the Co. Waterford coast since 2008 and  are now sharing the knowledge through a range of workshops and cookery demonstrations and a new book – The Sea Garden.

Book into a workshop to learn more about cooking with seaweed and how to find what you need on the amazing Irish coastline. Develop the confidence to create appetising and highly nutritious food using this re-discovered superfood.

In our workshops, we will take you through the process of foraging the tastiest varieties and incorporating them into your cooking, to enjoy the distinctive taste and health benefits.

Our new book The Sea Garden complements the workshops, and is an ideal starter guide to this fascinating subject.

You can also check out our range of Seaweed-based Food Products available for purchase and delivery.

Check this website for more information about the workshops, to get your copy of the book and to send us a message with your own seaweed stories or queries!
