Maine Seaweed Festival @ SMCC

Written by: Amy Paradysz - Contributor - amyparadysz@gmail.com

The Maine Seaweed Festival–the first one in Southern Maine–enjoyed a good turnout on a sunny Saturday on Labor Day weekend. From scholarly talks to touch tanks to a classy four-course dinner overlooking Spring Point Light, there was something for everybody. Festival organizer Hillary Krapf is “on a mission to share seaweed with the masses” (quoting her mother, Devorah Hanson). And that she did. You could hear about the positive impact that Maine macroalgae is having in our local food culture, agriculture, and aquaculture industries. Or you could sit back and sample Low Tide ice-cream made with kelp and ginger. More info: www.seaweedfest.com.
