Monica Wilde is an expert in wild food, wild medicine and wild booze, as she explores one of Scotland’s most under-utilised resources our wild seaweeds. Late winter is the best season to harvest many seaweeds, and in this practical presentation, Monica will explain how to harvest 10 species of easily accessible Scottish seaweed, explaining the properties of each, showing us the best ways of turning them into delicious, healthy food – something to be enjoyed by all the family.

Seaweeds are too often clumped into one, and in this session, Monica will demystify this complex and diverse food group, showing us how to treat each individual ingredient with the respect it deserves. There is so much to learn here. Seaweeds are superfoods, and are freely available to all, learning how to harvest and cook them is an investment.

Investment Readiness Workshop

Investment Readiness Workshop in Oban on 10th December 2015
12.30 – 4.00 p.m.

If you’re a charity, social enterprise, or community group, then this workshop is for you. We’ll provide you with everything you need to know about social investment, from what social investment is, to the importance of business planning, to the benefits of investment compared to grants. Whether you’re just starting out on your social enterprise journey or preparing for investment, be sure to book your place and join us.

The Investment Readiness Workshops are designed to have a very practical feel. We’ll be aiming to demystify social investment as we look at how charities, social enterprises and community groups can make good use of it.

These afternoon sessions examine how enterprises can access investment, the importance of business planning and the typical costs of borrowing. Delivered by SIS’s Roger Moors, you’ll hear it from someone who has not only established enterprises himself but also borrowed social investment to do it.

So whether you want to understand more about appropriate legal structures, how investment compares to grants, or why social impact is really important, these workshops are for you.
