Seaweed Workshop

At this seaweed workshop, we begin with a trip to the beach at one of the lowest tides of the season to see a diversity of seaweeds growing in their natural environment.  Next, there will be a demonstration of how to prepare some seaweed we harvested in the morning  into a yummy snack.  In the afternoon, there will be two presentations on seaweeds, their healing and nutritional properties, practical ways of incorporating them into one's lifestyle and more.  Seaweed tea and and a variety of seaweed snacks are offered during the presentations and a seaweed hand bath is experienced during a break.

Learning Outcomes:

*identify common, local seaweeds

*sustainable harvest techniques

*practical ways of incorporating seaweed into your life

*nutritional & medicinal properties of seaweeds
