Have you ever seen a seaweed garden? Did you know that, just like gardens on land, they’re rich in biodiversity and home to innumerable species? Have you ever considered the beauty and the goodness of the world of seaweed?

Guiding us through her aquatic garden we have Amanda Swinimer, wild algae harvester, who shows the peculiarities of different species, from the green sea lettuce to the red Pacific dulse, iridescent rainbow seaweed and kelp forests growing on the seafloor. Each one has a different color, consistency and flavor. Together, they play an important role in the life of the aquatic environment and produce oxygen as a byproduct of photosynthesis.

Whether or not your a fan of the taste of seaweed, it’s important not to underestimate the environmental role these marvelous organism play in our ecosystems.
