For centuries cultures around the world have relied on seaweed for nourishment and as a medicinal food. Right here in the Pacific Northwest we can still access these amazing plants. This program will take place on beautiful Lopez Island where we will hike and kayak to learn the ecology and uses of sea vegetables. In addition to harvesting and drying and pickling enough seaweed to last your family for the entire year we will incorporate sea vegetables into all of our meals. You will leave with a vast array of information about seaweed identification as well as the health and nutritive benefits of these ancient plants.
No hiking, camping or kayaking experience necessary.
