Learn How to Grow Seaweed & Algae for Food and Health

Seaweeding is dedicated to helping you learn how to grow seaweed and algae at home. With articles from our skilled writers, we explain techniques for growing algae, as well as preserving and using your homegrown seaweed, algae and cyanobacteria for better health, nutrition and enjoyment.

We cover everything you need to know to grow, harvest, preserve and use your own home-grown algae for food, health, beauty and more. Why limit yourself to gardening on land, when there are so many varieties of useful and fascinating underwater seaweeds that you can grow using inexpensive set-ups including home aquariums and tanks? Edible seaweed is a delicious and healthy supplement to your diet, used across the world in a variety of different cuisines from Japan to Scotland, and easy to grow. Here at Seaweeding, we want to show you how to welcome and embrace these wondrous sea plants (and bacteria) in your life, by sharing information on how to grow algae, as well as how to preserve and use seaweeds and cyanobacteria including sea moss, spirulina, chlorella and kelp in cooking and health applications.
