Meuse Farm x Veld & Sea

Event information

A chance to immerse yourself in an afternoon of flavourful feasting and natural discovery as Meuse Farm collaborates with the acclaimed Veld and Sea for a 'Harvesting the Sea and Earth' event.

Chef Caitlin Kennedy provides a feast that celebrates the land and sea, using a combination of fresh seasonal ingredients from the farm, and wild-harvested seaweeds from the Atlantic Ocean.

In this unforgettable culinary and ecological experience, guests can also participate in a hands-on flower crown making session, while sipping botanical cocktails, and learning about seaweed's secrets from forager Roushanna Gray.

This ocean and farm-to-table adventure promises an afternoon filled with sensory delights, delicious flavours, and an appreciation for our edible landscape.

Roushanna Gray, founder of Veld and Sea, is an educator and passionate forager. She shares her connection to the edible landscape through immersive educational experiences, nurturing a sense of connection and creativity. Over the past 15 years, she has worked with the diverse, wild flavours found in South Africa's mountains, veld, forests, oceans, and gardens, with a particular focus on the delicious and nutritious intertidal and underwater seaweeds along the South African coastline, which play a major role in her culinary creations, research and teaching. Veld and Sea's award-winning methodologies foster reciprocal relationships with the land and ocean, facilitating multi-sensory, embodied learning that deepens our connection to the natural world.

Caitlin Kennedy first visited Meuse as a volunteer farmer two years ago. She returned to home soil after many years working abroad as a chef to follow her dream - combining her passion for growing things with her love for food. She spent six months working in the fields, learning just how much time, effort, (and back pain) goes into ingredients that are grown with good practices. Her passion lies in using food as a platform to educate diners about food systems and seasonality, and to promote a thriving local food scene. She believes that food is more delicious when it tells a story, especially when it is a story of small producers doing amazing things for people and the environment alike.
