Beginner harvester

by karen werner

I live in Massachusetts and want to go harvesting seaweed in early May. Where do you suggest that I go? And this will be my first time.


What resources do you recommend that I get, in terms of books for identifying? I would like to identify, dry, and eat what I harvest.
