Oceans cover roughly 70% of planet Earth, and they are in rapid decline. Impacted by human-induced climate change, pollution, dredging and overfishing, the world’s oceans are crying out for our attention. On today's show, we consider seaweed and the potential of stewardship-driven, regenerative ocean farming or ocean restoration through marine permaculture. We speak with Leslie Booher, Co-Founder of Sunken Seaweed [], California’s first regenerative ocean farm. Leslie is a marine ecologist who learned about the importance of kelp forests at a time when kelp was facing a catastrophic decline. Leslie dedicates her time to ending exploitation of marine ecosystems, and reinforcing a healthy relationship with our coastline by farming sea greens in the Pacific Ocean.
