Above a local store called Rising Tide is a beautiful kitchen. Today, the 5th grade went to this kitchen for cooking lessons. We split up into three groups to make roasted vegetables, veggie home fries, and “sea green” omelets. After cooking, we set up the tables like a restaurant and sampled our work.

“Sea greens” refers to locally grown seaweed. A seaweed farmer (pictured below) was there to tell us about the growing demand for seaweed as food. His farm is in a nearby bay. He puts long ropes into the water and plants different seaweeds on them. They are currently in season and taste just like salad!
