Ryan Drum is a scientist, herbalist and local seaweed expert. He has been growing, harvesting and teaching about medicinal and edible plants for many years. He has a strong background in chemistry, cellular biology and both plant and human physiology. All of this he infuses with knowledge of this land, rich with story, ecology and playfulness. There was a recently released documentary made about his extraordinary life called: Old Man and the Seaweed. It’s hard to coax Ryan off of Waldron, an Island in the San Juan's. So don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of North America’s most respected sources of seaweed knowledge. Dress for all possible weathers (layers, sun/rain hat, gloves), wear boots, bring your own lunch and an item to share (if you want), notebook, If you want to harvest you will need a license and a bucket. There will be two separate classes. Please register through class cost $35.00
