DIY Seaweed Farming: a ‘how to do it at home’ guide is the result of an experimental research project, where Honey Jones-Hughes and Antonio de la Hera attempted to create a sea-like environment in their kitchen with the intention of nurturing seaweed to for human consumption. In essence we were trying to create a micro seaweed farm in our home, hoping to create the perfect environment for what is being hailed as a miracle crop capable to of solving climate, plastic and even fuel issues. As a project it was interesting for us to explore what it meant to try to replicate the sea in a confined environment, to live together with seaweed in captivity, and the daily labour of caring for something that was in many ways like a houseplant.
