Seaweed planting 2022

It was a cold, windy day to be out on the water, but we managed to get our 2023 seaweed in the water on Thursday, Dec. 15. We were planting in Casco Bay off South Freeport with seaweed farmer Ken Sparta and his son Leo of Spartan Sea Farms. We planted seaweed seedlings started by Lisbon Middle School, Greely Middle School, Pownal Elementary, King Middle School and Lincoln Academy.

Now we’ll let nature do her thing and look forward to harvesting this crop in spring 2023.
