Welcome to The Sea Gardener

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

We have been running seaweed forages around the Irish coast since 2008 and  are now sharing the knowledge through a range of workshops and cookery demonstrations in  The Sea Garden – a guide to seaweed foraging and cookery

Check out our range of Seaweed-based Food Products available for purchase and delivery.

Our book The Sea Garden complements the workshops, and is the perfect guide to this fascinating subject.

Check this website for more information about the workshops, to get your copy of the book and  we would love to hear from you, especially if you’ve used our products  to enhance your own recipes or to share your own seaweed stories!

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.  Book onto a forage 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 our indigenous  ‘superfood’, which is enjoying a resurgence.
