While kayaking among the Thimble Islands, you are likely unaware that you may be paddling over productive farmland. A kelp farm, to be specific.
This Wednesday, April 3, The Friends of Outer Island presents two guest speakers, Jill Pegnataro and Michelle Stephens from Greenwave, a Connecticut non-profit with the mission to “support a new generation of ocean farmers feeding the planet and building a blue-green economy in the era of climate change.”
Ocean Farming: Growing Kelp in Long Island Sound April 3, 2019 7 PM at the Willoughby Wallace Library in Stony Creek, Branford, CT
Jill and Michelle will tell us about Greenwave's Mission, 3D Ocean Farming in Long Island Sound, and seaweed aquaculture in Southern New England. Learn about the local marine farm in the waters close to Stony Creek where Kelp (an algae), mussels, oysters and scallops grow according to a new model of ocean farming.
Admission is free but seating is limited so please sign up on Eventbrite.
