Stonington Kelp Co

The Human Element

James Douglas

Setting up the farm and actually farming is most of the work - but there was a surprising amount of outreach that comes along with farming kelp. Jay and I found ourselves in front of more cameras than we expected.

We have been very fortunate to have Greenwave's support in both our farming set up, but also introducing us to journalists who are interested in learning more about kelp farming. Recently, a reporter from the Westerly Sun wrote up a lovely article about the kelp farm which is I am sharing the very least - it has hilariously unflattering photos of me (as pointed out by all three of my brothers).

You can read the SUN article here.

We were also lucky enough to meet Leslie Stahl on a 60 minutes feature she worked on around kelp farming that featured Greenwave. Its very informative so if you haven't seen it, take a look!
