Low Low Tide Adventures
June 26 - 27
Seaweed, clams, and all the rest! Harvesting, drying, recipes, ecology, and natural history adventures in the low low tides. Downeast Maine is famous for our 22 foot tides. And the cold Labrador current creates extraordinary algal abundance. Join Kacie Lopato (She Sells Seaweed), her harvest friend Paba, Severine, and Lydia (Seaweed Commons) for a Full moon time spring tide ! These are the low low lows that let us access the subtidal algae.
We will cover the ecology and biology of the seaweed ecosystem, hand-harvest techniques, regulations, drying, processing and culmination of the wild algae species that abound in our area. Perhaps Jon Levitt will come dig clams with us.
