About the event

We will introduce you to the taxonomy of seaweeds and do two day-trips to the shoreline to collect different varieties of seaweed, like nori, wakame, sea palm, turkish towel, and bladderwrack.  We'll also learn to cook them, and prepare spa treatments. 

Focus on seaweed identification, health benefits of seaweeds, intertidal ecology and restoration of kelp forest, sustainable wild tending and harvesting practices, understanding of Native American territories and right to food resources, and tastings of a couple cooked seaweed dishes, plus preparation of simple and traditional Japanese and other seaweed recipes, and learning to prepare seaweed spa treatments and luxuriate in these preparations
