Nori Tori 2024 coming Feb 25th

Nori Tori 2024

2023 Nori Tori Crew

If you are interested in harvesting nori from the beaches of Gabriola Island, mark your calendar for Sunday, February 25.

Nori is nourishing and grows naturally all around the Pacific Northwest, but the challenge is finding a beach with access to clean, cold, fast moving water and a convenient low tide. Foraging your own nori is a great way to explore Japanese cuisine, preserve tradition, and learn more about how we can be good stewards of this precious natural resource. It’s been a mild winter and with any luck the warmer weather will continue for another pleasant day on the beach for Nori Tori 2024!
