Come to the New Hampshire coast and learn how to identify and forage for edible seaweeds! You will learn about the benefits of incorporating seaweed into your diet, and how to forage responsibly and sustainably. Currently, New Hampshire residents are allowed to collect up to three bushels of seaweed per day. You will learn how to collect seaweed in areas where the water is clean, make sure the seaweed looks healthy, and clip the seaweed so that some of the blade remains to allow for sustainable regeneration.  

This workshop is fun for adults and kids and is a great introduction to the amazing world of seaweeds!

Cost: $15 per adult and children over 10 years old. Children 10 years & under are free. Space is limited.

Know before you go: We will be moving over wet, slick, and rocky terrain. Participants should wear proper foot gear (rubber boots or shoes with good traction that can get wet). Children must be closely supervised during the workshop. Thank you!

Location: Location will be announced prior to each workshop date. Locations will be in the NH Seacoast area. Previous workshops have taken place at Odiorne State Park and Drowned Forest Beach, Rye, NH.
