Edible Seaweed Forage with Heidi Herrmann

The first low tides of early summer are the best times to get out to the Sonoma coast to harvest fresh, delicious seaweed. Come on a culinary foray with local seaweed expert Heidi Herrmann, aka “Queen of Low Tide,” and learn about the history, ecology, and uses of this abundant native food. The foray will begin bright and early with a cup of SHED coffee and a lesson from Heidi on on how to identify and sustainably harvest seaweed. Then you will get a chance to fill your bag with local kombu, nori, and bladderwrack (types vary depending on availability). You can pack out as much as 10 pounds of fresh seaweed to take home the day of the forage.

Note: This event takes place off-site on the Sonoma Coast. Exact instructions and meeting place will be emailed to attendees before the event. This hands-on foray involves a steep climb and uneven, slippery surfaces. Attendees must have the ability to balance and move around on sharp, uneven, terrain. Attendees should wear rain boots or water sandals with good traction and bring plastic bags, gardening shears, extra socks, a water bottle, layered clothing and a hat.
