Venture into the Wild...

Kristy Bredin, Herbalist

Learner Limbach, Seaweed Aficionado


Seaweeds have traditionally been important plants for food and healing among coastal people throughout the world and are a rich source of diverse nutrients uncommonly available in land plants. This 3-hour in-the-field adventure will cover:

  • types of local seaweeds
  • optimal harvest times
  • sustainable harvesting
  • drying techniques
  • healing properties
  • iodine and thyroid health
  • external uses of seaweeds
  • pollution issues

Participants will take home a jar of kelp pickles we will make in class.

Class will be held on the northeast side of Orcas. There is a steep hike down to the beach. Carpooling will be arranged to the class location.

More specific details on location, what to bring, etc. will be provided after registration.
