CAMDEN — Carly and Claire Weinberg of Dulse and Rugosa return to Merryspring for a workshop all about Maine seaweed, Saturday, March 16, at 10 a.m.

Seaweed is an abundant resource with many practical and culinary uses.

In this hands-on workshop, guests will learn how to identify and harvest several species of Maine seaweeds, learn about the burgeoning seaweed industry in Maine, sample seaweed foods, and create their own seaweed-based skin care products to take home.

Dulse and Rugosa is a company that creates botanical products out of seaweed and other wild-harvested and cultivated materials from their small island farm on Gotts Island. The island has no automobiles, stores, and is entirely solar-powered.

This program is part of the Weekend Workshop series at Merryspring. The cost of this class is $20, with a discounted rate of $15 for members of Merryspring. All materials are included.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is required.

Merryspring is a community nature center offering walking trails, cultivated gardens, wildlife, and ecology and horticulture educational programs all year round.

The park is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza.
