A source of abundant plant life often overlooked for its medicinal and edible value; our coastlines offer just as much as our fertile soil plains.

In recognition of this, HSOV has organised a seaside forage with Chris Rockley, a local environmentalist, ethnobotanist, science communications expert and Parks Vic tour guide.

We’ll gather at the Williamstown foreshore to forage for sand dune plants and seaweed early on a Saturday morning when picking is at its freshest and most plentiful. You’ll learn about seaweed identification and there’ll be a practical demonstration in how to use it in the kitchen and garden.

Looking forward to seeing members new and old at this novel event.
