Unleash your inner wildling with a Veld & Sea foraging experience

Wild mushrooms, seaweeds and shellfish galore, edible weeds and leaves, roots, shoots and more. Unleash your inner wildling with a Veld & Sea foraging workshop. Robyn Simpson arrived clueless and left with a wealth of knowledge … and flowers in her hair.

‘It was late afternoon and the light was warm. Surfers parked along the roadside, gearing up for their afternoon fix. The narrow thoroughfare is sandwiched between mountains and the sea, which, seems more untamed in Scarborough than at other, more familiar beaches. The waves spat and sprayed, forming an ethereal mist that stretched along the coast. I rolled down the windows to feel closer to it all – the air was thick with salt, imbuing a sense of wild abandon.’ – Cape {town} Etc, autumn 2023 magazine. Read the full story here.

Watch:

Partaking in a Veld & Sea workshop is an experience to behold throughout the seasons. It’s an opportunity to learn how to embrace the seasons and practise celebrating imperfect integration. For Roushana, this is about collecting what’s available and leaning on local producers for what’s not, like crafting flower crowns with foraged doda (a leafless parasitic plant) and decorating them with blooms from a nearby grower. Connection – with nature, community and self – is at the forefront of this journey.

If your curiosity has been evoked, visit veldandsea.com to book an upcoming workshop. Group bookings cost between R650 and R1200 per person and private experiences cost R4000 for two people, R3000 for 3 to 7 people and R1750 for 8 to 12 people (all per person). Multi-day workshops and retreats are also scheduled throughout the year. Visit veldandsea.com/event-calendar/ to subscribe and stay up to date.

If you wish to linger longer, Veld & Sea’s Surf Shack accommodation is a beautifully refurbished caravan fit for the adventurous. Sleep over for R650 per person, per night (www.airbnb.co.za). Coming soon to Veld & Sea is the addition of talks, live shows, guided yoga, art classes and more, all to be held in a new, eco-conscious amphitheatre. You’ll find Veld & Sea at 7976 Plateau Road, Cape Peninsula. Be wildly inspired at @veldandsea on Instagram.
