Seaweed: Ecology, Use and Harvest Presentation

May 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join local farmer Heidi Herrmann for an illustrated presentation and demonstration on how to differentiate and use our coastal sea vegetables. We’ll also discuss seaweed ecology, harvest cycles, and the nutritional/health benefits of our local edible algae, such as nori, wakame, bladderwrack and kombu.

Heidi Herrmann hand harvests Sonoma Coast Seaweed and grows certified Organic herbs and cut flowers on Llano Rd, here in Santa Rosa. She is a farmer and owner of Strong Arm Farm. She leads public seaweed harvesting forays with ForageSF.com (April – Aug.) Heidi has earned an Ornamental Horticulture degree from Cal Poly and a Masters from Sonoma State University in Education.
