Explore the culinary possibilities of the native seaweeds of Maine with an experienced harvester. Taste a variety of sea vegetables and learn how to prepare several dishes including kelp noodles, toasted nori chips, and a New England seaweed salad. We will discuss the distinguishing features of different species of seaweed, how they are harvested, and the importance of sea vegetables as a nutritious, sustainable, and abundant source of food. 


Micah Woodcock is the owner/operator of Atlantic Holdfast Seaweed Company, a small company working to sustainably hand-harvest sea vegetables in Penobscot Bay since 2010. Their harvesting and drying operation is based on a remote island 7 miles off of Stonington, where the strong currents, active surf, and full exposure to the force of the open ocean have allowed these seaweeds to thrive for millennia.
