  • Low Low Tides with Kacie Loparto

    April 11 2024 - April 14 2024  

    As Smithereen Farm's Seaweed Harvest Captain, Kacie Lopato leads the algae harvest at Smithereen Farm, with lots of chatting and learning for beginners and intermediates. 

    RSVP is required. Please RSVP to [email protected].

    April 11–14 (Thursday–Sunday)

    May 8–12 (Wednesday–Sunday

    Groundrules— 

    • Be Punctual. The tide waits for no one.  
    • Safety First. We recommend rubber boots, water booties, woolen long johns/bib pants/wetsuits, wool sweaters, extra socks, a thermos of hot tea. 

    If you're a first-time attendee, we don’t expect much more than your learning and orienting to the intertidal zone. This is an educational experience we are happy to share in the spirit of the commons.

    If you want to join as a "proper harvester" for multiple days to learn the whole sequence of how we have learned to harvest, dry, and process algae for Smithereen Farm products, then we need to make sure you have the correct licensing for that. We are also willing to pay, feed, house and invest in your learning. 

    Serious inquiries: [email protected]

    Low Low Tides is a collaboration with our sister organization, Smithereen Farms.
