In collaboration with communities and ATLAS Arts, the CLIMAVORE Station works on pedagogical programmes on intertidal ecologies around Skye and Raasay, as well as the wider Highlands and Islands, including:
SCHOOLS: collaborating with the Portree High School, local restaurants in Skye and Raasay, as well as collaborations with primary schools and youth summer camp programmes to deliver educational activities around regenerative aqua-cultures.
FOOD & DRINK APPRENTICESHIPS: since November 2018, 40 students at Portree High School have trained to become CLIMAVORE Cooks. A series of scallop shucking and seaweed bread-baking workshops led by local chefs, foragers, scallop divers and Cooking Sections, encourages learning about species along the tidal zones of Skye, and food practices that can support them. Each year graduates of the course are awarded a CLIMAVORE Apprenticeship in restaurants and food establishments across Skye and Raasay. Working in close collaboration with the chefs, brewers and kitchen teams, the CLIMAVORE Apprentices develop, prepare and serve CLIMAVORE dishes. Participating restaurants remove farmed salmon from their menu to promote alternative ingredients that can develop regenerative aqua-cultures.
