"Seaweeds or sea vegetables, as they are also called, are a major super food, providing health benefits beyond any other substance on the planet. They are also delicious if one knows how to prepare them, and the kelp forests are in danger." Tanya Stiller – Nutritionist, Herbalist, Health Coach and your Seaweed Guide.
In this weekend trip we will learn about the health benefits of seaweeds, learn to cook some simple and traditional Japanese and other seaweed recipes, and learn to prepare seaweed spa treatments and luxuriate in these preparations. We will go to the shoreline at the low tide and take a close look at the interrelated networks of all the different inner tidal species, learn about and practice habitat restoration methods of the kelp ecosystem (utilized by both non-profit organizations and Fish and Wildlife Department), and participate in sustainable wild tending and harvesting practices of these seaweeds, in particular we will focus on the harvesting of the invasive seaweed species, and purple urchins.
