We support organizations focused on open-source methodologies for accelerating the adoption of replicable, worker-owned solutions for restoring ocean health while meeting food, fertilizer, fuel, ecosystem and habitat needs. We also support LIFT clients that are developing enterprise models and partnering with researchers to identify and implement strategies to grow products for human use, while restoring coastal ecosystems

Ocean Farming & Restoration - Friday, September 8th

11:30-1:00 BERMUDA ROOM

John Roulac, Founder NUTIVA Erin Axelrod, LIFT Economy
Dan Marquz, Pharmersea Andrew Baskin, LIFT Economy
Restoring California’s majestic giant kelp forests will sequester carbon, increase biodiversity and create blue green jobs. Over 95% of California’s kelp forests have disappeared in the past 150 years. We will explore re-planting our native kelp forests, state coastal regulations, coastal native tribe participation, cutting edge projects including Bren Smith’s GreenWave and Marine Permaculture, potential markets for kelp and sea greens and how vibrant kelp forests support aquatic life bio diversity.
