In this very informative and interesting three-hour workshop, Stuart Whitelaw will take you on a journey to discover the many wonders and practical uses of the local seaweed. For many years, he has been using seaweed to feed both his garden and family – proving to be a great source of nutrient rich goodness. If you have a garden (or a family), this is a great workshop to learn:

  • The seven wonders of seaweeds  – Soil conditioner, Plant bio-stimulant, Fertiliser, Energy source, Animal food, Human food and Industrial uses,
  • Identify and know which seaweeds to use,
  • Legal collection of seaweed,
  • Method for making liquid seaweed concentrate,
  • How to use and apply it in the garden, and
  • How to prepare and include seaweed in your diet.

About the presenter – Stuart Whitelaw has been a keen gardener for over 40 years. He was joint author and teacher of the first course in Permaculture taught in the TAFE system. Since he began his first vegetable garden, seaweed has been an essential partner. He has completed a Bachelor of Architecture and a Diploma on Organic Horticulture.
