We live in abundance, including a rich variety of seaweeds! Seaweeds can be used as food, medicine and fertilizer.
Nori, wakame, bladderwrack and kombu are just a few of the local seaweeds that we'll learn about. The informative illustrated presentation includes how to identify, sustainably harvest and use our coastal "sea vegetables" and will also discuss pollutants, the health of our coastlines, harvest cycles and the health benefits of seaweed. Later in the afternoon, with expert guidance, we'll go on a foray and practice our identification skills and more.
