from Mycelium Mysteries 2021: Remembering Our Connections
Workshop Length : 1 hr. 8 min.
Phycology, or the study of seaweeds, is an entry point into the complex foodwebs of the ocean. These foundational organisms are critical food and shelter to countless species and have been a source of food and medicine for humans for millennia. We'll learn some basic marine botany and dive into the myriad healing and nutritional properties of seaweeds. We will also explore how they have entranced people with their mystical role in the underwater world.
