Sign up to join this summer’s 3-day Seaweed 101 workshop on Lopez Island
2014 Weekend Workshop dates: TBD
This summer, trade your gardening shovel for a kayak paddle and harvest your greens from the Pacific Ocean. More nutrient rich than kale or chard, seaweed is the miracle lettuce of the sea and contains almost all of the minerals found in the ocean. In Seaweed 101 we travel to beautiful Lopez Island to kayak and learn the ecology and uses of seaweed and sea vegetables. In addition to harvesting, drying and pickling enough seaweed to last your family the entire year, we’ll incorporate sea vegetables into all of our meals and craft a variety of beauty products using our harvested seaweed. You’ll leave with an expanded palette, some delicious new recipes, nourishing treatments for your skin and hair and an oceanic knowledge of seaweed history, nutrition and identification. Plus, harvesting from a kayak beats digging in the dirt any day! * No Kayaking experience necessary.
Seaweed 101 is co-taught by Jennifer Adler and celebrated whole foods chef Zephyr Dunnicliffe. Both skilled foragers, Jennifer and Zephyr will share the incredible health benefits of seaweed, and show you how to deliciously incorporate this miraculous food into your diet and beauty routine.
