'Vraic' - A Guide to Guernsey Seaweed
Seaweed is the most under-exploited natural resource on the planet - and it is in abundant supply around Guernsey’s coastline. It is packed with nutrients and properties which make it both a super-food and a natural alternative to man-made skincare products and plastics.
Ben and Naomi Tustin started their journey of seaweed discovery in 2018 and now have two businesses making skincare and food products from this incredible natural resource. This book shares their knowledge of the history of seaweed’s importance in Guernsey, is a guide to the types of seaweed found around the Island’s coastline as well as their own story and how to use seaweed in our everyday lives. Full of information, ideas, photographs and recipes this book is sure to teach you something about the seaweeds of Guernsey.
“Seaweed is a great source of hope and Guernsey people have a great story to tell. If you want to support ocean ecosystems instead of destroying them, seaweed is the best place to start! This book is a fantastic example of how we can demonstrate this around the world.” Vincent Doumeizel - Author of “The Seaweed Revolution “ (Hero Press) / Director Food Programme for Lloyd's Register Foundation & Senior Advisor Ocean for United Nations Global Compact
