Sea Salt Harvesting – March 18 at 7 PM

Alison Darnell and Heather Ahearn of Atlantic Saltworks will be the speakers for the March meeting of the Greater Newburyport Edible Garden Group. The program begins at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, March 18th in the Newburyport Public Library Program Room.

Alison and Heather are the founders of Atlantic Saltworks, a local independent business reviving North Atlantic salt-making traditions. They will share with us some of the history of saltworks in our area and describe how they make flake finishing salt.  Atlantic Saltworks is based in Salem, with operations in Amesbury and Essex/Gloucester.

The Edible Garden Group was formed by community members who are interested in getting together to learn and share information about sustainable food growing – veggies, fruits, nuts. The meetings are focused on building community resilience through increasing the availability of safe, nutritious, sustainably-grown local food.
