VELD AND SEA_SOCIAL MEDIA_Facebook EVENT IMAGE copy.pngWho we are, what we do and why we do it.

There is flavour, food and medicine all around us, we just have to learn how to recognize it.

Based at the Good Hope Gardens Nursery in Cape Point, Veld and Sea offers seasonal and sustainable foraging classes, workshops and collaborative events for public and private groups, wild flavour cooking classes, corporate events and team builds, tour groups, wild flavour consultations, public talks, presentations and travelling foraging
tours.

Roushanna Gray founded this experience based business 10 years ago. A year ago she expanded her team to include resident marine ecologist, Erika Brown, and wild chef, Gemma Troy-Hancock.

Outside teachers that are experts in their field are hand selected to lead our specialized workshops including Wild Beauty, Botanical Cocktails, Mushroom Foraging, Medicinal Plants and Botanical Embroidery. Meet the teachers HERE.

We are a positive, innovative, nature inspired team, committed to creating and providing nurturing and fulfilling experiences that are adventurous, engaging, educational and delicious.

On all of our seasonal wild food foraging workshops, we support and strive to teach sustainable, responsible and legal foraging practices.


Roushanna:
“This work is more of a lifestyle than a job – reconnecting back to our food source through foraging wild edibles,
harvesting home grown ingredients and spending time outdoors learning about our natural environment is
nourishing, fulfilling and much needed in our fast paced modern society. The joy of curating a creative space for this
to happen, plus the conversation that happens around the table is personally one of the most rewarding parts of this
work.”
Erika:

“I simply love being outside, especially in or near the sea. I am continually inspired by and curious about nature’s beauty and complexity, all of it’s hidden treasures, it’s perpetual refinement at play. And so, Veld and Sea is a place to live that out and share it with others. A feel good place that allows me to eat, drink, breathe, feel and be in what I
love.”

Gemma:
”Veld and Sea offers me a perfect combination of many things that I love. My life is enriched by the team I work with. Everyday I learn something new and work in and with nature while having the freedom to express my creativity. Everyday is a new and exciting experience.”

“No one will protect what they don't care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced”― David Attenborough
