The Algaenarium – June 2019

In June 2019, FoodPioneers created a weekend extravaganza celebrating all things seaweed.

Highlights of the weekend included soothing spa treatments with seaweed-based oils and infusions in a seafront marquee provided by Anne-Marie from Taste of Space and Rosie from Rosie Denyer Holistics., along with talks and workshops about the local marine environment, seashore walks, and a seaweed vendor stall providing some of the best products from the British Isles.

Seaweedy tales of selkies and kelpies and castles that lie deep in the depths of the ocean were created by Storyteller Siân Jones and  Marine Conservation expert Alice Tebb told us about Kingmere Marine Conservation Zone  – a area of coastline close to Worthing.

DJ and bar were provided by Manuke and seaweed-infused fish n’ chips from Proto Group. The event kicked off with a beach fire on Friday evening and included several bracing sea-swims!

Below is a gallery of the highlights of this truly community event.
